Uniting for Oxygen appeal

05 March 2021

Through our Global Development Committee, the college has made a donation of £2500 to a WFSA appeal supporting hospitals in Nigeria and Zimbabwe.

The World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists’ (WFSA) Uniting for Oxygen appeal aims to raise £100,000 ($A180,000) to deliver oxygen concentrators, pulse oximeters, generators emergency bags, associated training and ongoing maintenance support to a number of hospitals in Nigeria and Zimbabwe.

The WFSA has worked with member societies in Africa to identify hospitals experiencing the most severe oxygen therapy shortages. The WFSA is matching all donations, doubling the value of our contribution to £5000.
While the appeal is for African hospitals and hence outside our Global Development Committee’s usual area of focus, we continue to support worthy causes beyond the Asia Pacific region where possible.
