Projects Update

October 3rd, 2014

Defibrillator for the Health Center Krupanj

Krupanj was one of the areas hit hardest with the recent floods. To make things worse, they were already lacking some basic medical equipment such as defibrillators. SAMA defined  a project and purchased a Schiller Defigard 4000 defibrillator through a Schiller representative in Serbia.

Expected delivery is scheduled for early October 2014.

Update 10/17/14: DELIVERED!!!!! Details

 

Of special note is that we were able to purchase this equipment VAT (PDV) free. The PDV tax is 20%. We are thankful to the Ministry of Health and Mr. Aleksandar Ranković, as well as representatives from Schiller d.o.o., especially Mr. Milan Krković, for guiding us through the PDV exempt process. This is the first time we were going through such a process, and we are hoping that from now on it will save us significant funds and enable us to help more people in Serbia.

 

 

Ultrasound probe for the Health Center Subotica

One of the stated SAMA goals is to help improve the health care of babies and children in particular. We organized a walk in May 2014 with the objective to collect money and purchase an ultrasound probe for the Health Center in Subotica. The probe is used in cranial ultrasound scanning for premature and sick babies.
The HC Subotica requested a probe that would be compatible with the ultrasound equipment that they already have (Mindray DC6) - Mindray multi-frequency transducer 6C2.
 

We contacted Medigala d.o.o. which is the exclusive distributor of Mindray equipment in Serbia. Again we were able to purchase this probe without paying duty or VAT.

Expected delivery is by the end of October 2014.

Update 10/14/14: The probe is in the Belgrade office of Medigala d.o.o. and will be delivered to the Health Center in Subotica shortly!!!!

 

 

Ultrasound System for the Health Center Brus

We completed all the paperwork and transferred funds to Medigala d.o.o. for purchase of Mindray Z5 mobile ultrasound system for the Health Center in Brus.

We expect delivery of Mindray Z5 ultrasound system to the Health Center in Brus by mid November 2014.

The Health Center in Brus serves a large number of remote villages and this equipment will be used by emergency doctors or nurses when they visit those villages.
