Canning House is pleased to announce its donation of £1,000 in support of the Embassy of Peru, UCL and International Medical Education Trust’s fundraiser for Wayrachi respiratory device production in Peru.
The Wayrachi helps keep Covid-19 patients out of intensive care thus protecting many lives, by connecting them to the oxygen plants of hospitals, providing patients with a high-pressure pumping system that allows them to breathe more easily when oxygen via a face mask alone is insufficient.
