For every 10,000 people in the United States, there are about 27 doctors and 30 hospital beds available. For every 10,000 people in Calcutta, however, there are 9 beds and 6 trained doctors. This is more than a problem in a city of 22 million. It’s a crisis. And it is not without hope.
For $100.00, our state-of-the-art, fully-functional hospital in the heart of the city will be supplied with select items needed for daily operations, such as wheel chairs, nail removal sets, surgical scissors, and stretchers. These items are a crucial part of the process in keeping Mercy alive in Calcutta.
