Blessed Gérard's Care Centre & Hospice
receives beds from the U.S.A.


Brendon Beaumont, Sebastian Hofmann, Nkosinathi Dlamini (in the truck), Fr. Gérard and some helpers offloading the beds at Blessed Gérard's Care Centre and Hospice in Mandeni.

Our member, Mr. Michael Perigo, who lives in the United States of America and works at a retirement community, saw the opportunity to send some second hand hospital beds to us for use in Blessed Gérard's Care Centre and Hospice. Mr. Perigo arranged for the beds to be transported to New York where the Catholic Medical Mission Board had agreed to sponsor the shipping of the container, with the beds in, to Durban, South Africa. The South African Receiver of Revenue also very kindly allowed us to import the beds free of any duty or taxes. The shipping agent was also kind enough to donate their services free of charge.

Thank you to Mr. Perigo, the retirement community, the Catholic Medical Mission Board and Bridge Projects for the donation, the hard work and generosity involved in getting the beds to us.
