For the past one year, not a month has passed without our team of volunteer specialists travelling to Transcarpathia to provide medical and mental health care to our fellow human beings who have fled from the fighting and are living in temporary accomodation.
‘The most important thing is to be able to provide some help to the suffering, silent masses of refugees.
It is also important to ensure civil solidarity with our fellow human beings who are in trouble. We have found that this is also a very important part of our mission.’- Dr András Spányik, founder and head of MedSpot’s medical professional team, wrote on the subject on his Facebook page.
In a previous domestic project, we experienced that transporting blood samples over significant distances takes a long time, increases costs and often renders the samples unusable. This situation is particularly delicate when the accurate diagnosis of sick children is at stake.
The mobile laboratory is of outstanding importance in relation to our missions, as it allows us to diagnose chronic diseases, as well as acute illnesses in children in time.
An important requirement for mobile laboratory equipment is that it should help diagnose most disease groups in the simplest possible way. Currently, the use of a mobile laboratory can be provided by a combination of two devices. One is able to perform the necessary tests: electrolytes, cardiac markers, blood coagulation, haematological parameters and certain endocrinological tests can also be performed.
The other device, an automated laboratory, enables the determination of CRP levels suitable for monitoring inflammatory diseases, average blood glucose (HbA1c measurement) and blood lipids.
The total price of the two devices is HUF 3,000,000. The aim of our collection is to generate a significant part of the money through community fundraising.
Our fundraising was also reported by telex.hu, one of the most visited Hungarian news portals, the article is available on this link: TELEX ARTICLE
