Gaubin Rural Hospital

Gaubin’s saving hands - Dr. Rakotoson

It is the first hospital in the country to drive a module that also incorporated, run and establish a nursing college within the hospital area. It is one of the oldest hospitals in the country and to date serves more than 120, 000 people on the island and nearby Bagabag Island.

However, Gaubin prides itself in also having some of the best medical practioners from abroad. Being a mission run hospital, specifically the Evangelical Lutheran Church (ELC), they have an agreement with other ELC establishments abroad to bring in specialist doctors to Gaubin.

Gaubin receives vaccine fridge

The rural hospital has been without a vaccine fridge and as such could not implement vaccination programs in its rural communities.

Digicel Foundation donated a solar powered vaccine fridge worth K57, 000.00.

The fridge will be used to store vaccines, blood samples, and has an ice maker. This is valuable when health workers travel into remote areas.

Digicel Foundation Chief Executive Officer, Serena Sasingian, enlightened people, staff and students at Gaubin about roles and functions of the Foundation and of their assistance to communities since its inception 2008.
