Leon Becerra Children's Hospital in Guayaquil Needs an Ambulance
Currently, our children's hospital needs an ambulance to serve its community. Those few minutes before a child reaches the emergency room can make the difference between life and death. HLBG provides comprehensive health services through its outpatient, emergency, and observation areas to low-income children. In addition, the hospital hosts North American and French Humanitarian Medical Missions that perform free surgeries, serving approximately 87.5% of the national population.
Ecuador recorded close to 23,000 coronavirus cases and nearly 600 deaths just in April, with Guayaquil by far its worst affected city. Therefore, the health system collapsed and many ambulances were broken down beyond repair. That is the case of the HLBG ambulance. Being HLBG, a hospital that serves the underprivileged and vulnerable population, we are seriously concerned that many children with life-threatening diseases can quickly deteriorate or die if they are not transported to a hospital in a prompt manner. At this moment, patients are being transferred to the hospital by taxi or private vehicles.
