Your gift will help St. Albert’s meet critical needs, which include the following:

  • Purchase essential medical and rehabilitation equipment;
  • Support the hospital’s cervical cancer prevention project, which has screened more than 4,000 women for precanceous changes on the cervix, identified more than 200 women with these changes and treated many of these women to prevent the development of cervical cancer, the leading cancer killer of women in Zimbabwe;
  • Support the training of midwives;
  • Support the home-based care program, which helps families coping with AIDS, cancer, and life-threatening illnesses;
  • Support an outreach obstetrics program that helps young, abandoned pregnant women safely deliver their infants and strives to reduce suicide and infanticide;
  • Help educate and feed orphans;
  • Support the hospital’s agriculture project, which provides food for patients and can be a source of hospital income;
  • Maintain the hospital water supply—its wells, back-up reservoir, and water purification system, which are designed to serve not just the hospital, but the mission and its elementary and secondary (boarding) schools, and, during times of drought, people in the surrounding villages—up to 10,000 people in all;
  • Tools, such as welding equipment, that are critical for maintaining the hospital’s trucks, generator, water pumps, tractor and plow, grinding and milling equipment, and other essential equipment.
