One of the best ways to help hospitals and patients is to directly
buy equipment that hospitals badly need. Instead of giving money
to some charities where donations are diluted by administrative
costs and bureaucracy, going out and buying the equipment ourselves
is a speedy and efficient way to help - and you know exactly what
was bought with your money.
Julia, mum, dad, and a generous taxi driver have already bought
3 TVs and VCRs for Hammersmith to help entertain patients who
are confined to bed. Without TV you would go crazy looking at the
same 4 walls all day. If a patient is comfortable and relaxed then
they stand a much better chance.
Julia has found out that Northwick Park hospital badly needs some
machines that monitor the amount of oxygen in patients' blood. Each
one costs about £2000. If you would like to give some
money to Julia's unregistered charity then she would be delighted.
Anything you can spare towards these machines will help other people
Hammersmith hospital needs a new, large, reliable microwave oven
- their old one is broken and patients don't like eating hospital
food. Nutrition is very important for cancer patients and because
hospital food is so unappetising it's common for patients to lose
weight which is dangerous in their condition.
Julia will go out and buy these things herself so you can be sure
the hospitals get what they need and 100% of donations is spent
on the equipment. To pledge a donation please contact
Julia by email.
