The Patient Welfare Fund
The common illnesses of our patients are Stroke, Epilepsy, Brain Injuries, Hydrocephalus and Central Nervous System (CNS) Infections (Meningitis, Encephalitis, Abscess and others).
All these are serious conditions that could be fatal in the absence of proper diagnostics and medications. Given the costly expenses needed for their treatment, this becomes a great burden to our indigent patients at the UP-PGH who hail from all over the country.
To aid in diagnosis and healing, laboratory tests, brain-imaging procedures, life-support systems and life-saving medicine all require funds that more often than not, our patients do not have. Oftentimes, the corresponding crucial care cannot be given to them before their conditions take a turn for the worst.
In response to these critical needs, Let’s Save the Brain Foundation launched a fund raising campaign to establish the Patient Welfare Fund. The funds raised will provide indigent patients access to the necessary tests, procedures and medicine that will not only cure ailments at the soonest possible time, but more importantly, save lives.
What your Donation can do?
Did you know that…
for every peso you give, a patient at the Department of Neurosciences, UP – PGH will be able to breathe for three more minutes?
Many patients need to rent ventilators to survive. Every peso that will be donated will count.
for Php12,000 (or just aroundUSD 285), you can already provide an aneurysm clip that is worth the productive lifetime of a patient?
And if you have more blessings to share, for every Php100,000 (or around USD 2,350) contribution, any of the following can be done:
- Eight aneurysms will be clipped and secured; never to rupture again.
- Two fatal infections will be fought, clearing for a new life.
- Two patients will survive a stroke with no significant disability.
- Five patients will undergo lifesaving brain surgeries.
- Ten important MRI procedures will be done, so patients will be managed more accurately.
Let’s Save the Brain will appreciate any amount of contribution that you can give to these patients in UP-PGH.
