Giving vital equipment to rural communities

We are committed to improving the health of our rural communities,  And one way we do this is to make sure they have the vital equipment to diagnose health issues, and respond quickly in times of emergency. 

Sadly, rural communities often do not have access to the same standard of equipment that is taken for granted in larger regions. Our supporters help provide much needed funds to purchase this equipment.

Equipment that may save a life whether in the community, in a GP clinic or in the local hospital.
