Medical Supplies Donated
We’d like to extend a huge thank you to Joyson Pte Ltd for their generous donation of medical supplies to support our response to Super Typhoon Haiyan.
Between our own purchases, and the generous donations of Joyson Pte Ltd, IDV secured more than 80kg of medical supplies in Singapore. The cash value of Joyson Pte Ltd’s gifts was a fantastic £440.
Joyson’s staff were also kind enough to hand deliver the supplies directly to Dave and Dagmara’s hotel in Singapore for free. This gesture allowed our team to avoid the cost and hassle of transporting such a large quantity of medical supplies across Singapore.
When travelling on to Tacloban, our team received further help from a local taxi driver who waived his fee for driving them to the airport. Tiger Air then also supported Dave and Dagmara’s efforts by kindly agreeing to let them transport all the medical goods, plus a further 60kg of general supplies, for free.
The medical supplies are now in Tacloban and are allowing local health professionals to provide medical treatment to survivors of typhoon Haiyan.
If you know of another company which might be able to donate goods or services to support our response to Typhoon Haiyan please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Goods don’t need to be medical – we’re also seeking tools, help with shipping and storage, airline miles, and a host of other items.
