What a container brings to the local community
What do we need for the next container
On September 26th we packed our container. It now has a 3 month journey to arrive at the hospital in DR Congo. What we need for the next container We plan to pack and send another container next year.
Each container provides:
- sewing machines,
- hospital beds and equipment,
- birthing kits,
- Days4Girls packs,
- school chairs and desks,
- and many other items.
As we have just sent a container we mainly need help collecting goods for the next container. We are collecting:
- mobile phones (with charger),
- laptop and tablet computers,
- solar panels,
- sewing machines,
- fabric, haberdashery,
- educational resources (such as pens, exercise books, pencils, white boards),
- school desks and chairs,
- office chairs and desks,
- any tools and old spectacles.
- Everything in working order and clean.
Please let us know if you can help us with ongoing storage space in a clean accessible container/shed/warehouse/shop.
Please let us know if you can donate a container If you wish to donate the $13,000 for the transport of the container it can be named in your honour. E.g. Sharon Geue Container of Hope.

Container with Ambulance and Four Wheel Drive
St. Johns Ambulance group in Perth donated an ambulance and this was loaded into a container together with a 4WD Ford truck that has been donated and driven from Mittagong in NSW. The ambulance has helped save the lives many people in Uvira District.
It can reach remote areas to transport the sick people. In many villages this is the first time that they have seen an ambulance. For two days every week the ambulance serves as a mobile clinic for consultations and treatments in the villages. There has been a noticeable reduction in mortality rates and a significant improvement in general health.
