Global Emergency Care Skills

GECS was founded in 2008 as an Irish voluntary, non-profit organization with a core objective of providing emergency care training to doctors and nurses in countries with developing healthcare systems.

Sepsis and trauma are two of the fastest growing causes of morbidity and mortality in populations with developing healthcare systems. Recognizing the deficit in Emergency Care training in Africa, IAEM member Dr Jean O'Sullivan, Consultant in Emergency Medicine at the Adelaide & Meath Hospital, Incorporating the National Children's Hospital (AMNCH) in Tallaght established the Global Emergency Care Skills charity.

Global H20

Our goal at Global H2O is to provide clean water sources to communities through construction of wells, rain harvesting facilities, and spring boxes. We contract with organizations in developing countries to identify where we can significantly improve lives in a short period of time, with minimal expense and complexity.

A $20 donation provides clean water to one person for the rest of his or her life. The water problem is vast, but the solution is simple and effective.

Why is Nyumbani needed?

Nyumbani Labcloseup Shot The need for Nyumbani couldn’t be more pressing: Over 200,000 Kenyan children under the age of 14 are infected with AIDS and an estimated 1.1 million Kenyan children are orphaned due to AIDS. AIDS has washed through Kenya’s communities like a tsunami, taking the strongest adults and leaving over a million children orphaned and older adults unable to support themselves in an unforgiving landscape of disease and poverty.

In addition to the Nyumbani programs in Kenya, it has chapters in the United States, United Kingdom, Spain, Italy and Ireland. Nyumbani is supported by government grants, donors, and corporate sponsorships. An annual gala in the U.S. provides a much-needed source of funding.

Our whole-child model works
