Last week a band of wonderful volunteers packed two 40ft sea containers with donated medical equipment and supplies, bound for hospitals in Harar, Ethiopia and Hargeisa, Somaliland. These shipments are part of our infrastructure program which provides equipment for the renovation projects currently taking place in these two cities.

The equipment included hospital beds and mattresses, 4 pallets of gloves (thanks Ansell!), a mini c-arm (x-ray unit), anaesthetic machine, 2 pallets of surgical linen (thanks Karen Grieves) scrubs/uniforms, operating bed, wheelchairs, shower chairs and much more.

Huge thank you to our volunteers Graeme Wilson, Brad Knight, and representatives from the Lions Club of Claremont Nedlands, Lex Thomson, John Barnett, Robin Hutton, Sami Tadros, Dirk Avery, Paul Wyndham (excellent scribing Paul!), Greg Hogan and Ben McManus.  Thanks Len for arranging the volunteers.  Special thanks to Hugo Vriezen for building shelving/crating in the Hargeisa container to protect the theatre lights.

Huge thanks to John Ward, Michael Clegg and the team at Australian Wool Handlers, Bibra Lake, for their ongoing support and assistance.
