Colombia – I Breathe For You – Fundación Neumológica de Colombia
The Pneumological Foundation of Colombia needs to have the necessary equipment to care for the victims of the Covid-19 pandemic who require intensive respiratory and cardiovascular care. The I Breath project seeks to obtain the economic resources to provide the necessary equipment for the management of patients in the critical stages of recovery and rehabilitation of the COVID-19 disease, taking into account the current situation as well as a long-term post-pandemic vision.
The $ 6,333 donation will go towards funding a cubicle (bed, ventilator, vital signs monitor, and others) at a cost of $ 17,000. This purchase is part of the Colombian Neumological Foundation’s campaign for the acquisition of 25 cubicles that will allow it to meet the needs of Covid-19 patients during the critical stage of the pandemic and later as well.
The Fundación Neumológica de Colombia is the executing agency of the project which will be in charge of supervising it. The project was approved by the Board of the Retirees Association on June 24, 2020 and the funds were disbursed on June 29.
