Industrial washing machine for psychiatric hospital Kovin

Location: Kovin, Serbia
Project Cost: US$15,000

Industrial washing machine to help with improved basic hygiene and health conditions for hospitalized psychiatric patients.

This is the largest psychiatric hospital in Serbia. At any point in time, there are between 1000 and 1500 in-patients. While the medical and supporting staff is doinf their upmost to care for these people, the conditions are extremely bad. Unfortunately the buildings and equipemnts have deteriorated and a significant in put of capital is needed to this place to some acceptable standards. One of the issues we identified was the inadequate laundry service. The entire hospital is being “washed” with old washing machines, which are often broken. When we visited, there was only one machine in operation!

We immediately purchased an industrial washing machine. This donation is worth US$15,000.
