It could be recalled that the country of Korea is a strong partner to the University of Gondar and is continually engaged in the future growth of the biomedical field in Ethiopian Higher learning institutions. With that spirit in mind the African Future Foundation of Korea has been able to share and donate some critical equipment to the University hospital that will further its aims of serving its community.
Under the agreement, the University of Gondar will be provided with 15 dialysis devices (kidney cleansing machines), including one month of in-house training for two nurses, a three-month training course for our doctors in Korea, machine maintenance support and general dialysis center management and counseling, and training for UoG biomedical staff.
When speaking on the matter the President of the University of Gondar, Dr. Asrat Atsedeweyn, expressed his delight and appreciation of the foundation for the work they are doing to develop the University of Gondar. “I would like to put forth my heartfelt thanks to the individuals who facilitated the agreement and would like to personally thank the Korean Embassy in Ethiopia for facilitating this great deed,” shared Dr. Asrat.
It is known that Kidney failure effects many people in Ethiopia and the acquisition of these essential equipment will bring UoG one step closer to caring for those who really need it.
