Zimbabwe (MNN) — Extreme Makeover: Sanyati needs your help.
In 2008, hyperinflation in Zimbabwe led to severe economic hardship; from 2007 to 2008, the Zimbabwean dollar lost more than 99.9% of its value. The currency officially collapsed in early 2009, and a multi-currency system was established.
As a result of the economic crisis, many hospitals shut down. However, Baptist Global Response began a five-year renovation of the Sanyati Baptist Hospital in 2010 to keep shining the light of Christ.
Three years down the road, BGR has made some major progress. The hospital's water system has been upgraded, the roofs on 12 buildings have been replaced, and interior repairs have also taken place. Last year, they installed solar panels to keep buildings lit during the evening hours.
While the project has progressed, a lot of work remains. Several wards and units still need major renovations, and labs are still lacking cabinetry, plumbing and electricity.
