DEAR EDITOR, Take My Hands Charity Trust in New Zealand (my partner charity) has confirmed that a container of some 50 hospital beds and two ultrasound machines was loaded on a vessel which left Wellington today.
The vessel is expected to arrive in Honiara on 16 November 2018.
A second container with 50 more hospital beds and some 30 wheel chairs is expected to be shipped soon.
