Hospital Beds Distributed Throughout Charity Health Network
During our June 2017 trip to Sierra Leone one of the items most requested throughout the Charity Health Network was hospital beds
. Some facilities needed additional beds and others needed replacement beds.
HealeyIRF immediately began reaching out to our partners in search of beds and were very happy when we found that the Tzu Chi Buddhist Foundation had a supply. Facilities requested non-electric beds as they are more practical; however, these beds can be difficult to locate.
Sixty beds will be delivered throughout the network. A delivery of 16 beds has been made to Christ the King Hospital (pictured above right) and James Lahai, Hospital Administrator at Serabu Hospital in Bo, came to pick-up the beds from our warehouse in Kingtom. HealeyIRF Program Manager Ishmeal Charles noted that Mr. Lahai was very appreciative of the 15 beds Serabu received as many of their beds and mattresses were so worn out they badly needed replacing.
