Bethsaida needs more space, more rooms.  There are just 7 emergency beds and the outpatient department can be overcrowded.

We plan to start building a spacy Department for Mother- and Child health care in which we have room for education and training. Besides that we plan to build one ward with 10 beds.


A significant part of our work is based on our untiring volunteers who donate their time either individually or collectively in groups of friends, fellow students or co-workers as part of Corporate Social Responsibility projects!
