AMCANI in Vietnam and Myanmar

We are a 501.c.3 NGO that has been working in SE Asia since 2005. Our model is to recycle abandoned medical equipment (beds, microscopes, etc), take it overseas and train local health care providers in the use of this equipment. Since 2005, we've been refining our model while building a micro-neurosurgical unit in Hue University Hospital, Hue Vietnam. We have collected data that proves the validity of what we do and presented it at a major medical meeting. Now,  we are expanding our focus on improving general medical care, in collaboration with Relief International, to northwest Myanmar's Rahkine province.  Your financial  support will fund the shipment of most of the contents of a 149 bed hospital that has been donated to us! 

What we do exactly with donations: 

Our overhead is only our banking fees and 99% of your tax deductible donation goes towards shipping and refurbishing the equipment that we ship.

For every $4,000 dollars raised we can send a 40 foot cargo container of medical equipment. i.e. gurneys, beds, and x-ray machines to Rahkine. We have 149 beds to send and each container holds 36. We can ship badly needed x-ray machines,  EKG machines, laboratory equipment, autoclaves, and even a CT scanner! We are in a unique position to introduce modern medical technology into an areas where none exist and then leverage that material donation by our teams of instructors.  Using the AMCANI model, our medical teams will donate there time and effort to train the local practitioners to elevate their level of care using the donate equipment. But we need to get the equipment there!

 We have found that sustainable, modern, health care can be delivered by local practitioners once they have access and training to the tools of modern medicine. In combination with guidance as to what our local partners feel is most needed we can impact the lives of tens of thousands people . For the price of a dinner, won't you support us? 

Thank you in advance for your generosity
