During 2017 SAMA Open Tournament we collected funds to purchase new mattresses for the OB/GYN department in Prijedor and Gradiška Hospitals, Republika Srpska, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Patients were using mattresses that have not been changed since 1975!!! Attached, please find pictures of some representative “samples”.
Working with local manufacturer in Gradiška, we were able to procure 62 new mattresses targeted for hospital use with covers that can be easily removed and sterilized. We procured total of 62 mattresses, 40 for hospital in Prijedor and 22 for hospital in Gradiška. The mattresses were delivered in early November. With this donation, all beds in OB/GYN wards of these hospitals got new mattresses.
