Sad but true. The South Pacific Moana Hospital Trust who are the caretakers of the equipment I have earmarked for Vanuatu, need to find new premises to store the vast amount of equipment from the Nelson Marlborough District Health Board.
What to do? Here’s how I see it:
- The Trust finds new a warehouse, at a good price (they are a registered charity) and then transport ALL of the equipment to those new premises (before 30 July 2016). OR
- Before 30th June, I find $14,000 to have ALL the equipment loaded into a 40 foot shipping container and shipped to Vanuatu. This saves the Trust double-handling the equipment IF they find new suitable premises. OR
- Before 30th June, I find $9,000 to have some of the equipment loaded into a 20 foot shipping container and shipped to Vanuatu – this saves the Trust moving all or some of the equipment into any new accommodation. OR
- If NO new warehouse is found and I DON’T find funds, the outcome is all equipment goes to landfill or scrap metal.
Despite my best efforts to raise funds from a variety of corporates, New Zealand businesses associated with Vanuatu, applying to some philanthropic entities; I have not achieved the goal.
All is not lost (yet).
There are still 12 days to go before my deadline of 30 June.
