Nearly ready to go – with help from our friends

Things are moving very fast now at MAD-Aid. Since telling you two weeks ago that we are seeking funding for our first shipment, we’ve sourced almost all the money we need, thanks to generous donations and the help of our tireless volunteers.

Since MAD-Aid was formed in 2012, we have sought collaborators working in similar fields to us, so that we can share resources and help each other.

We are delighted to be able to work with ChildAid, a London-based charity that helps children in Belarus, Moldova, Russia and Ukraine. ChildAid has equipment that it wants to transport to hospitals in Chisinau, the capital of Moldova. We will be taking our first shipment very soon now, and ChildAid is contributing £1150 to our transport costs.

This is a really big boost for us, and we are now looking forward to getting our first truck on the road filled with beds and equipment for hospitals in Moldova.

Other donations for the trip have come from Roger Skidmore, HJ Benett and other supporters.
