Medical and safety supplies available for recovery

Medical and safety supplies available for recovery

Wigram MP Jim Anderton is assisting Auckland based medical and safety supply company Fabricell in its efforts to distribute free medical and safety products valued at over $300,000 to Christchurch hospitals, clinics, recovery centres, rest homes, clean-up operations and food shelters.

Fabricell’s generous donation was made immediately after the February earthquake in order to help towards the recovery and restoration of the city, its people and community.

The products, ranging from coveralls, gloves, sanitizer, wet weather gear, fire retardant and Hi Vis apparel are being stored in a Sydenham warehouse and available immediately.

The products have been donated free of charge to local organisations such as the Canterbury DHB, the Public Health Unit of the Ministry of Health and the Christchurch City Council along with Civil Defence and other organisations in need of medical and safety product and apparel.

Jim Anderton is encouraging local organisations to get in touch with Emma Jeffery on 0275 760 636 or or turn up to the warehouse at 73 Coleridge Street, Sydenham to access the donated stock.

“So many people have rallied round to help our city and this sizeable donation of safety equipment from Auckland is not just generous and thoughtful but in short supply right now in our time of need.

“It’s humbling that so much is being done across the country for Christchurch right now, there’s much to be grateful for”, says Jim Anderton.
