HELP!! Secondhand computers and medical equipment needed!

HARDA is looking for donations any medical equipment, used or new to send to 2 hospitals that are urgently in need of equipment of any sort. Make a difference, contact us if you or someone you know might be able to help.
Or do you know any company, school or group that might have a number of second hand computers that they would be willing to donate a number of computers for schools in Somalia and Ethiopia??
HARDA is also seeking working computers that we can send to a number of schools that are desperately in need of these. Early this year we sent 50 donated used computers to a high school in Ethiopia. Before this they had computer classes with 6 computers for more than 60 kids. And these few computers were all there were in a school of over 500 kids! Now they are thrilled because they can have computer classes where the kids can actually get to touch the computer. But we have requests from other schools in Ethiopia and Somalia with no or few computers who really need them. How can they compete in this modern world? Help them help themselves. Email us harda@harda.org.au or message us through facebook if you can or someone you know can help.
