Why donate to Virtual Hospital
More than 10 million children die each year, most from preventable causes and almost all in poor countries.. Many poor people cannot afford the simplest of medical treatment and as a result die unnecessarily. Help us change that by saving a life online.
No child is born to die, but 8 million children under five die every year from illnesses we know how to treat, or prevent, such as diarrhoea and pneumonia. In the 21st century, this is utterly wrong. With a child dying every four seconds, you don’t have to be a parent to know that this is simply not acceptable and together we must find practical ways to prevent these deaths. Ensuring healthcare is available to the poor is our mission and we are doing this using telemedicine, IT and mobile applications.
At Virtual Hospital we’re not waiting for a miracle cure or a wonder drug to save these lives. We know what works. We just need more of it – more access for the poor to good doctors and nurses. By making medical care available to the poor using telemarketing we could help save over 1 million lives a year and change healthcare provision to the poor forever.
Virtual Hospital does not receive any funding. As such we rely on our supporters to fund this vital and essential project for the poor.
When the cost of a chocolate bar would pay for a baby’s essential healthcare, the money you donate really does have the power to save a life.
