The daily fee for being in the hospital is 500 Francs, about one dollar. The patient is charged for each lab test, x-ray, medication and surgical procedure. Marcel who spent 2 weeks in the hospital with his cerebral malaria had a bill of $250. His mother is handicapped and his grandmother is the sole provider for the family. She was able to pay $17.
Donations in our name to MDA allowed us to cover the rest of his bill and allow him to go home.
Thank you all for your continued support.
