Burn Victim Care Unit

Meeting Time

Wednesdays, 6:20-7:10 PM

Project Description

The Burn Victim Care Project is addressing the problem in treatment of burns in Mali, Africa. Around 70 to 150 people suffer serious burns each year. The current method of treating burns is not only painful, but also not sterile. Patients in the hospital will move to a room where they get their wounds cleaned. However, the water used for this process might not always be sterile. While the process cannot be completely painless, it could be done safer and more efficiently with the use of a portable shower.
