IF- starter pack € 5.000
To cover medical costs of diagnosis and intake activities for new patients: costs incurred by a local medical doctor, including training, accommodation expenses of children coming from remote areas, the medical materials they need. For 100 children: € 5.000

IF- training pack € 10.000
Lack of information and training is the most important shortage in developing countries affecting the treatment of children with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus. if organises training in the South, where we try to work with the resources available locally. Moreover, South-South exchanges are stimulated. Travel and accommodation expenses for a training team (2 to 4 persons) from Belgium, with exchanges of local professionals from within the different projects.

IF- Operating theatre pack  € 20.000
Equipment for the operating theatre (essential medical materials, a Hydrocephalus operation kit and related supplies). Note we endeavour to purchase as many quality products as possible second hand.

IF- ETV pack € 50.000
A majority of children with Hydrocephalus can be uniquely helped by an endoscopic operation. This avoids having to put a shunt in and the excess of water in the head is cured permanently - a major advantage, amongst others. The basic equipment for this procedure is an endoscope, with the necessary accessories. A complete Endoscopic Third Ventriculostomy (ETV) equipment kit.
