MAHECAS UK has received a donation of over 1000 intensive care hospital beds from a UK hospital and wishes to raise funds to ship over 500 beds to be distributed in all districts hospitals to be used by patients requiring critical care.
One 40 ft container can take 60 bed at a cost of approximately £5,000. 10 containers can ship 600 beds and would cost around £50,000. A UK company has kindly donated £15,000 in addition to baby cots and mattresses.
MAHECAS requires to raise the balance of £35,000. To donate to this worthwhile cause, and make a difference to Malawi Hospitals, please visit our GoFundMe page here.
Any donation will contribute towards the cost of shipping. Please note that those that donate £100 have an option of inscribing the words “Donated by …….” on a bed which could be donated to a District Hospital of their choice.
The Beds have to be shipped out of the UK by January 16th January 2019 as the current owner is paying for storage costs.
