Hospital Equipment for Iraq

Although filling the 40ft shipping container is already guaranteed with the incredible amount of donations we have already received, further donations are continuing to arrive.

Thank you to the neonatal specialist at John Hunter Hospital for the donation of 6 infant incubators! Also his personal offer of support for the proposed new birth clinic in Northern Iraq including a possibly trip there himself.

Also thanks to Eldrene March for the donation of another really good sewing machine. The sewing group at Bajed Kandala hope to sew and sell children’s pyjamas.

Dear friend Lyn Thorpe-Lindenaar has delivered two more huge boxes of medical supplies from St John Ambulance.

Thank you dear Rania El Mahmoud for making the trip from Sydney with beautiful hijabs and scarves for the women in the camps.

We have purchased consumables for the donated medical equipment – batteries for the defibrillators, electrodes, probes and printing pads …… and none of these items are cheap. The latest 4 x Philips MP70 Neonatal monitors for high level monitoring received don’t have cables. These cost $450.00 per set. If you would like to help to meet the approximately $3,000 cost your donation will do wonderful work saving lives.
