Organisation ID: CHY18176
Build4Life/Cystic Fibrosis was founded in 2007 and to date has raised over €3,500,000.00
In 2011 we funded and opened the new Adult CF Outpatient Clinic including all of the medical equipment at a cost of €350,000.00
In 2014 we will spend €2,300,000.00 on the Adult CF Isolated Inpatient bedrooms in Ward 5B in Cork University Hospital. This donation will be the largest ever philanthropic donation in the history of Cork University Hospital.
In 2015 we will spend €1,000,000.00 on the Children's Cystic Fibrosis outpatient and inpatient facilities.
We are currently raising funds to develop the Children's isolated inpatient bedrooms.
People with CF need to treated in isolated ensuite accomodation while attending hospital. Build4Life/Cystic Fibrosis was the first charity in Ireland to raise funds to develop hospital accomodation in any hospital in Ireland. We need to raise a further €300,000.00 to develop and complete all the CF facilities in CUH. Build4Life/Cystic Fibrosis also raises funds for medical equipment and staff for both the adult and children's CF departments.
In 2014 Build4Life funded vital medical equipment for the Children's CF Department which will allow children with CF to be treated in single rooms until the Build4Life funded isolated CF facilities are developed.
In 2014 Build4Life secured 3 medical staff for the Children's CF department in CUH; A full time Cystic Fibrosis Nurse specialist, a half time physiotherapist and a half time phycologist.
In 2014 Build4Life purchased iPads for children attending Cork University Hospital.
Build4Life also provides funding for all the needs of both the adult and children's Cystic Fibrosis departments.
Build4Life/Cystic Fibrosis is the only charity funding the development of these life saving Cystic Fibrosis facilities in Cork University Hospital.
