We decided to spend balance amount received against Covid relief by donating a Microscope to General Hospital (Government Hospital ) at Ernakulam . This was discussed thread bare and this Government hospital was chosen for our community support measure for the following reasons
1)This is a costly equipment and available only in the Medical Colleges and Private Clinics generally not affordable by poor
2) Many of the buildings in the General Hospital and the specialized equipment that they house, like CAT scan etc were donated by various agencies.
3) This hospital is reasonably well maintained and is served by a team of dedicated doctors
4) Since the General hospital caters mainly to the poor, donating a high quality equipment to this hospital will ensure that the poor patients get good healthcare which aligns with the objectives of SEWA
Based on our specifications, PO was placed on Vendor “Fifty Plus Scientific Enterprise” who qualified at a quoted price of Rs. 66670 The microscope was delivered to General Hospital on 15th March 2022. Sewa representatives officially handed over the same in a small function organised for the same by the hospital in the last week of Mar 2022
