One of the causes of mortality in Venezuelan hospitals is the poor quality of the water. Small children are particularly vulnerable to water-borne diseases. This is why, since 2018, we have started to focus on this issue.
So far. we have installed water filters at three large hospitals: JM de los Rios - Caracas largest children' s hospital; Materno Infantil de Caricuao - a maternal and children's hospital; Vargas Hospital, one of the oldest health institutions in the country and also a medical school. All of them are high-density hospitals in Caracas.
By installing the water filters we are not only helping the patients but also the visitors and doctors, thanks to a separate tap that was installed to allow for easy access.
To date, we estimate we have benefited more than 50,000 people per year.
