Upskilling Nurses

An important objective for the Tshemba Foundation is to upskill the staff at Tintswalo Hospital so as to ensure a sustainable impact is made from volunteering. All Tshemba volunteers are encouraged to contribute to nurse training during their visit. These important training initiatives involve small costs such as the provision of training equipment and the printing of training materials and certificates.

Alleviating Resource Limitations

Tintswalo Hospital has resource limitations around their laundry and seamstressing facilities. With some funds, Tshemba would be able to take their laundry and curtains to the sewing project run by Nourish, a fellow NGO. We would not only be supporting a local NGO and the women from the community who are a part of this work, but also substantially improving the hospital. Past projects we have supported related to resource limitations include the renovations of wards, such as the casualty ward and a Covid-19 isolation ward.

Fast-Tracking Urgent Maintenance Needs for Patients and Staff

Funds can always be used to support small and urgent maintenance needs in the hospital, which would otherwise take time due to lengthy petty cash approval processes. Donations would also be used to replace old mattresses to improve patient care, as well as tidy up the storerooms.  This would improve the efficiency for nurses and healthcare professionals.
