Reports

At the completion of every mission, a report is written and made available on this website.

With these reports, we want to document our activities and describe progress that has been made, but also admit failures or difficulties that have been encountered. The reports also serve as a basis to plan the next steps of our program.

What local doctors and nurses say

We have asked local health care professionals to give some feedback on our work. They are our local champions who ultimately will guarantee that progress made will be sustained.

There is no way to fully express our gratitude for your loyalty. We at Rundu State Hospital are continually inspired by the dedication and generosity of NEO FOR NAMIBIA. Prof. Berger and his wife have repeatedly played a key role in successfully implementing CPAP to help babies with respiratory distress.

We are so pleased to receive all your support: it really means a lot to us. We know that we can learn from both Sabine and Prof. Berger, and we recognize that we are making progress. Improving respiratory support and our abilities to monitor babies is saving lives. We don't know how to thank you.
