Tribute Information

Ninety percent of critically-ill children globally are located in resource-poor settings, such as sub-Saharan Africa. However, the majority of public hospitals in these settings struggle with their emergency and critical care infrastructure. One in ten children continue to die of illnesses that could have been prevented with timely, simple emergency and critical care interventions. Our Seattle Children’s supported Pediatric Emergency and Critical Care-Kenya (PECC-Kenya) program trains East African doctors in emergency and critical care skills in poor-resource settings. We are training African doctors in Africa, specific to the local disease spectrum and with the resources they have available. Your donation helps give critically-ill and injured children in East Africa a chance to survive and your gifts will help improve the health infrastructure for the sickest children in some of the most disadvantaged parts of the world long-term through capacity building.
