Hospital De La Fraternidad in Chinguetti, Mauritania

Donation of neonatal incubator - Expectant mothers are not receiving proper prenatal care in Chinguetti and are often malnourished, resulting in an impact on the developing baby.  Neonatal equipment is greatly needed to care for infants, giving families hope for the survival of their newborns.


 Humanitarian Trip and donation of endoscopy equipment.

Endoscopy equipment is desperately needed in Chinguetti.  Currently, there are no screening resources available and diagnoses of GI issues are late-stage.  This life-saving initiative will help to identify health problems earlier resulting in timely response and treatment

Thanks for submitting!

2019 Dinner Dance and Silent Auction

Indian Cultural Event Fundraiser Education 

Sri Lanka Tsunami Support Mission


​The Gettysburg Big Band performed at The York County Medical Foundation’s  20th Annual Dinner Dance and Silent Auction held on August 24, 2019, at the Country Club of York.  Over 100 guests attended the dinner and there were more than 100 great items available for Silent Auction bidders.


On August 10, 2019, The York County Medical Foundation, in conjunction with Natyashala School of Dance and Indo American Academy of Classical Music, hosted an Indian Cultural Event Fundraiser at Central York High School. A donation of $5,000 was presented to Beverley Stambaugh, Executive Director of the Greater Pennsylvania Region of the American Red Cross by Dr. Vasudevan Tiruchelvam, President of The York County Medical Foundation. The proceeds were donated to support the home fire campaign which installs fire alarms in York City homes.

When a powerful tsunami in the Indian Ocean devastated coastal regions of Asia in December 2004, 30,000 died in Sri Lanka and 640,000 were left homeless there. Shortly after the tsunami struck, Dr. Tiruchelvam, president of York County Medical Foundation, traveled to Sri Lanka, where he was born and lived until 1978, and where he has family still, to see how the Foundation and the York County community could help. 
With the money raised by the foundation and in cooperation with Habitat for Humanity, York County Medical Foundation constructed 15 homes in the Sri Lanka.
