Nursing Books & Mannequins Needed for Nursing School in Rural Uganda
I am the co-executive director for a global health organization called Partners for ACCESS (http://partnersforaccess.org/) based out of Massachusetts. We work with a community-based organization in rural Uganda and are helping to establish a three-year accredited nursing school. We will be sending a 40 ft container to Uganda in a month filled with equipment for our clinic, laboratory, classrooms, and library through an organization called IMEC (http://www.imecamerica.org/). However, in order to receive accreditation from the Ugandan government, we must have nursing textbooks, 3 basic mannequins, and 1 skeleton for the school. Does anyone know where we could secure mannequin or textbook donations?
We need a resuscitation, adult, and obstetric mannequin, as well as a basic plastic skeleton. The mannequins can also be very basic (our students currently practice on bags of leaves so anything is an upgrade!).
I have included the categories of textbooks we need below. We need 10 books in each category; however, they do not need to be the same title, author, or edition.
First Aid Textbook
Nursing Theory Textbook
Med. Reference Material
Medical Journal Subscription
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
