There is so much going on in the world at the moment that it’s hard to see how you can make a difference, and what should be your first priority when you want to help.
However, one charity has come up with a plan that not only offers real and tangible help to people in real need, but in doing so it helps the environment by gathering up equipment that would otherwise be headed for landfill.
MedEarth takes unwanted or excess equipment from our hospitals and medical facilities and takes it to part of the world where that kind of lifesaving kit is in desperately short supply.
Apparently every $10 donated to MedEarth means $1000 worth of medical equipment can be rescued and sent to places where it’s most needed and has the greatest benefit.
Why are we even talking about this on Flat Chat? Early next month your Flat Chat team – Jimmy Thomson and Sue Williams – will be taking part in a sponsored walk in the Bouddi National park to raise funds for MedEarth.
If you would like to make a donation – or just find out more about what MedEarth does – click on the Trails For Change logo above or this link where you can donate to Jimmy or Sue or their “team” which is called Fully Booked.
We’ll walk the walk, instead of just talking the talk. And for your part, even a modest donation will make a lot of difference somewhere in the world.
