Dumaguete City (27 February) -- Rural hospitals in Negros Oriental got a boost from the German Ministry of Defense after the latter donated medical supplies and hospital equipment for the community primary hospitals in the province.

The donation was turned over to Community Primary Hospitals Chief Dr. Chelsa Cacaldo on February 25 by the Sampaguita Deutsch-Philippinischer e.V., a German non-government organization led by a Filipina, Araceli Bejar Heimann.

Heimann, whose organization has facilitated and organized the turn over of the donation, said the medical supplies and equipment from the German government aims to help improve the capability of the rural hospitals in the province.

Some of the donated supplies, numbering a total of 114 items, include otoscope with opthalmoloscope, blood sugar test devices, surgical wound retractors, scalpels, surgical needles and endotracheal tubes.

This is the second time that the German Ministry of Defense in Bonn, Germany has extended assistance for local hospitals here. The first time was on September 18, 2006 during which similar medical materials were turned over to the Negros Oriental Provincial Hospital. (PIA) [top]
