Instead of sending Christmas cards this year, I've chosen to support the Betsi Kenya Health Link "Shillings for Sheets" appeal. I've donated the £40 that I'd usually spend on cards & postage to the campaign, which aims to buy sheets for beds in Busia County Referral Hospital.
Beds in Busia County Referral Hospital currently have mattresses with a plastic cover, and no sheets. My £40 is enough to buy new sheets for 4 beds in the hospital. This simple, everyday necessity could improve comfort for patients and help reduce issues with infection prevention.
If you can, join in with the Betsi Kenya Health Link Shillings for Sheets appeal and help us raise £2,000 - enough money to buy sheets for every bed in Busia County Referral Hospital.
