BUY ONE, GIVE ANOTHER
For Every Watch Sold, Another Will Be Given
To Health Care Worker That Needs One.
Will Die This Year Due To
The Lack Of A Wristwatch.
Incredible and shocking to us too. Sadly, children are also among these victims.
A WATCH CAN SAVE A LIFE
From snakes bites and fevers to general famine or dehydration, the world’s poorest populations are in dire need of emergency care. In developing countries rural clinics, workers many times don’t have the proper equipment to treat an emergency. Among these basic tools are wristwatches. From medicine dispensation to emergency check-ups a watch is a vital tool in healthcare.
If anyone comes in with a poisonous bit or a trauma the medical worker needs to have an accurate instrument to measure time, not having one can mean the difference between life and death. Many times they go without.
To further point out the importance of a watch, in a recent study done in England, 20 doctors and nurses were tested on their ability to assess heart and respiratory rates without the use of a watch’s second hand. All 20 took longer than a minute to make estimates and only one of the participants gave reasonably accurate answers. Testers came out with the conclusion that with out a wristwatch to properly monitor these vitals, patients who potentially are very sick aren’t recognized as being such.
A watch is also critical to saving a lives during a cardiorespiratory arrests. It is vital for a Dr, or healthcare worker to time the number of chest compresions per minute (100) and resuscitation is divided into 3 minute blocks of time. Also after resuscitation occurs the drugs administered are needed to be timed also.
TIME TO HELP
The basic motor behind Human Time Project is you. Every time you buy a watch from us an exact model will be donated to fight this cause. It’s a great feeling, knowing that at the end of a day, with a minor purchase, you can make a difference in someone’s life.
HOW WE DONATE
We work with a diverse group of people to help us distribute our watches. By learning through our different NPO partners we have taken the time to select the proper organizations that are currently giving medical care to the poorest regions of the world and also monitor to make sure the watches go to good use.
We have already donated hundreds of watches in our first programs in Guatemala and Nicaragua with more donations to continue in Central America, Haiti, and Africa in 2013.
