Where did this idea come from? The matter that grabbed our attention during our journey in Africa was the lack of access to medicines, rehabilitation, medical equipment and appropriate treatment in the countries mentioned above. All these problems were shocking for our doctor, pharmacologist and the whole personnel. Just one blood pressure gauge intended for a whole hospital? An amputation of a broken leg as the result of the lack of a qualified person who could set the broken bone. Unfortunately, in such places, unlike in Europe, this is a very common practice. How many people could be saved if there was even one ECG machine? Then we came up with this idea. Why not bring help with us the next time? At least a little bit… So here we are!
