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 $500.00, our state-of-the-art, fully-functional hospital in the heart of the city will be supplied with more advanced necessities for on-going performance, such as portable IV stands for patients, hydrometers, needle sets, dissectors, and fetal dopplers. These items are a crucial part of the process in keeping Mercy alive in Calcutta.
