DEAR EDITOR, I read the touching letter in the Island Sun today, Thursday, in which an appeal was made for 50 or more urgently needed wheel chairs for the surgical ward at the NRH.
I have immediately asked my partner charity in New Zealand, ‘Take My Hands.’ if we could help to meet the requirements and await a reply.
The MOU arrangements made between the MOHMS/NRH/TMH is currently awaiting the second payment to be made to TMH to allow the shipment of between 8 to 10 containers of medical equipment and medical supplies to Honiara, a situation I have previously explained in recent letters to the local media.
In the interim should any individual, business, organization or other donor source be willing to help cover the freight cost of a container from New Zealand with any wheel chairs TMH might be able to acquire quickly, please write to me via the link provided in my website – http://www.solomonislandsinfocus.com.
Thank you for your consideration.
