Mbarara, Uganda

We have also been working with Holy Innocents Children’s Hospital in Mbarara, Uganda.  The hospital asked EWB Syracuse to provide engineering assistance for installation of a new oxygen generator at the hospital.  Two local professionals traveled to Mbarara to oversee the installation, providing technical direction to local contractors and troubleshooting any installation difficulties.  Several EWB Syracuse members have traveled to the manufacturer’s facility in Buffalo, NY to learn more about installation and maintenance of the oxygen generator.

We have completed our initial involvement as of 2015. There is a dedicated technician overseeing the operation and maintenance of the oxygen generator. We keep in touch with the technician and will assist as needed.
