Fighting COVID In Dhaka Children’s Hospital

The first patient

COVID 19 has made travel for our Disaster Aid Response Team impossible.

However DAA has not stopped delivering aid.

We have been continuing to support partners in the fight against the disastrous pandemic.

After contacting the Rotary Club of Dhaka Royal about needs in Bangladesh, they identified the Dhaka Children’s Hospital as needing support.

Disaster Aid Australia has combined with Disaster Aid UK & Ireland to purchase a Baby Bubble CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) machine for the hospital.

This machine is critical for treating babies affected by COVID-19, and when the pandemic subsides, will have a continuing use for babies with breathing difficulties.
