MedEquip4Kids proud to deliver equipment to hospitals across the North West
MedEquip4Kids is celebrating another year of delivering medical equipment to sick children in Manchester and across the North West.
MedEquip4Kids improves the health of children and babies in the north of England by providing equipment not available from limited NHS resources. The charity believes every child should have access to the best medical care when they need it most.
This month alone, the charity has installed a multisensory room at the Royal Bolton Hospital, costing £9,500, a new incubator for tiny and very sick babies in Ormskirk, audiology equipment to screen newborns in Chester and equipment for sick children in hospital in Macclesfield. Over £50,000 of equipment and resources has been delivered to ten hospitals in the region in the last four weeks alone, and over the past twelve months the charity has spent just under £200,000 directly on medical equipment to help sick children in hospital.
This year the charity directly benefited 67,000 children who would otherwise not have had access to the latest and best medical equipment available.
Dan Rees, whose son Buddy was born prematurely and treated at Royal Oldham Hospital, understands why the charity is so important: “Having experienced first hand the difficulties caused by the strain on NHS resources, we are so pleased that MedEquip4Kids is there to provide the extra equipment that helped Buddy win his fight for life. As a parent you want to know your child has access to the best equipment possible, and it’s great to know that the charity is out there trying to provide it.”
Shulamit Pfeffer, founder and trustee of MedEquip4Kids, said: “I’m so proud that the charity we started 27 years ago has made such a difference to so many children in the region. Every donation, no matter how big or small, is always put to good use to make sure that children have the best equipment to treat them when they need it most.”
