CBRE donates medical aid to support Charity’s work in Malawi

Craig Allen, CBRE Estate Manager at Heywood Distribution Park in Heywood, Greater Manchester has teamed up with registered charity Medi Tech Trust to find a good use for surplus medical supplies.

A range of medical items left in a unit soon to be let will shortly be on their way to Malawi to support a variety of projects aiming to improve the availability of medical care to the people there.

Bob Lewis, founder of Medi Tech Trust, said

“We are a UK registered charity, dedicated to donating equipment and supplies to medical institutions; arranging training courses for surgeons in low-income countries; and advancing health care education in the community. So far £1½ million worth of medical equipment has been donated to hospitals in the UK and overseas. More than a million items of surgical supplies have also been donated. This package of items will be joining others being readied to be shipped to Malawi which is a country new to our list of those we support”

Craig Allen spotted the items whilst inspecting a unit being readied for letting and felt they should go to a good home, “We very occasionally get items left behind by former tenants and on this occasion was particularly unusual as the items left consisted of all manner of medical equipment and disposables. It was clear that this could be put to good use if the right recipient could be found and Medi Tech Trust’s work in Africa seemed an ideal cause to support.”
