  • Impact

    Impact

    Long term changes consist of better treatment for the children at ALEH, being able to execute more preventive medical treatment in order to prevent complications and the worsening of the medical conditions of the children.
    The success will be demonstrated in a decrease of complications and worsening of the medical conditions of the children and being able to treat more children waiting for medical treatment and care

    Risk

    This is a very straightforward project. ALEH has a lot of experience purchasing the right medical equipment and using it in a correct manner. The only risk might be that the project will not be funded completely. In this case other external donors, which have donated medical equipment in the past will be approached in order to try to finalize the project. However, even if parts of the project is realized, parts of the medical equipment will be purchased. It is a very low risk project.

    Reporting

    Per request of donors, proof of Purchase and signed Financial Statements of 2014.
