4.26.20 Makunda Christian Hospital, Bazaricherra, Assam. Northeast India
The Makunda Christian Hospital is situated in a remote and predominantly tribal region of the Karimganj District in Assam, and is also strategically located at the junction of the three states of Assam, Tripura, and Mizoram. With the remoteness comes the challenge of the availability of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). That did not deter the hospital—the nursing school stepped up and the students used their sewing skills to produce masks and gowns to protect their healthcare workers in the fight against COVID-19.
