Saving lives beyond borders

We first met H.E. Bernaud Haufiku, Minister of Health and Social Services, Namibia at the India–Africa Expo 2016. One thing led to another, and our excitement knew no bounds when he accepted our invitation to visit Phoenix Medical Systems and we realised we were going to host him. Preparations went ahead in full swing, and we awaited his arrival. The minister flew down to India from Namibia just to visit us.

Interacting with His Excellency was a great pleasure. He evinced a keen interest in our products and facilities. We talked about the status of newborn care in our respective countries and how we could help each other.

On returning to Namibia, Dr. Haufiku appealed to organisations to come forward and sponsor Phoenix devices to save babies suffering from Respiratory Distress Syndrome. Multichoice, a leading video entertainment and Internet company in South Africa, came forward and donated a number of the devices to the ministry.

Considering the bond we share with our beloved minister, we made the devices available at reduced prices.

Our Managing Director accompanied our technical team when they flew to Namibia to install the equipment and train the clinical staff in its use.

We were extremely happy to be involved in this remarkable event wherein we could reach out to another country.
