Welcome to our Website!

On October 19th we loaded a shipment bound for Ghana – pictured below. We are very grateful for the support of the Rotary Club of Norwich and the Rotary Club of Knaresborough

The equipment which has a significant amount of paediatric content will be received by a Resource and Assessment Centre who will supply it a new hospital and school in Ghana. The school will be Ghana’s first ‘inclusive school’ where children with a disability are educated alongside main steam students. Traditionally, children with a disability have never been educated in any meaningful way. This consignment of equipment will be part of a whole process of breaking down negative and prejudicial beliefs disability.

Physionet teams up with LIHDA

LIHDA (Lymphoedema International Health & Delvelopment Awareness) http://www.lihda.org/ is a charity run entirely by volunteers. They have a simple goal: to improve the lives of patients suffering from lymphoedema, which is swelling of the limbs caused by various medical conditions. People suffering from this condition in low and middle income countries do not have access to garments to reduce the swelling, and they suffer from employment difficulties and social stigma. The garments are distributed by therapists through the health care systems and regulatory bodies in each country. The garments are shipped in containers or lorries with other redundant equipment in partnership with PhysioNet.

Thanks to NRS Healthcare

Saffron Walden Rotary Club have been active in collecting surplus equipment from NRS depots, and their commissioners, in the south of England. We have also worked with NRS depots in the North. Thank you very much to NRS Healthcare and Rotary.
