In association with the Rotary Club of Osborne Park and the Mongolian Red Cross Society, Aspire Mining Ltd has agreed to fund the cost of shipping medical equipment supplies from local Western Australian hospitals, which no longer require the equipment due to upgrades, to a number of Mongolian hopitals and clinics.
The Red Cross will assist with delivering the equipment and it will be donated to an Ulaanbaatar based gynaecological clinic, the Tsetserleg Hospital and Mogoin Gol Health Clinic – both hospitals being located nearby Aspire’s coal and rail projects in the Khuvsgul province.
The medical equipment includes x-ray machines, dialysis machines, ultra sound machines, infant incubators, defibrillators, hospital beds, wheelchairs and more.
Aspire’s Managing Director, David Paull, commented: “This recent collaboration with Rotary and the Mongolian Red Cross fits neatly into Aspire’s community initiatives to improve health and wellbeing in our local communities and follows previous investments, including assisting in the completion of construction of the Tsetserleg Hospital in 2012”.
Paull concluded: “We are again pleased to be involved and being able to facilitate the donation of this medical equipment to Tsetserleg Hospital and other Mongolian healthcare providers where we know it will be put to good use.”
