The FASA Charity Association was formed in 1999 from an idea suggested by Gus Raddock and Emosi Tilivi, who witnessed first-hand how perfectly working expired hospital equipment were being dumped in Adelaide.
Up until 2010 the charity has lobbied directly with government hospitals and NGO’S in South Australia for container shipments to Fiji of wheelchairs, beds, commodes and various other medical supplies.
Currently, the Charity is linked with the Rotary-managed, Donations In Kind [DIK] Warehouses operating out of Salisbury, SA. DIK are the official distributor for retired hospital equipment and aids. Items here are sorted for shipment to needy hospitals and individuals with a disability in needy countries
DIK is made up of a large team of volunteers who store and some cases restore and refurbish wheelchairs [manual/electric], hospital beds [manual/electric], walking frames, electric scooters, commodes, lifters, mattresses, bedside cabinets, surgical equipment, dental equipment, educational material, computers/laptops, children’s toys, white goods etc.
FASA Charity Projects is honoured to be in a position to lend a hand to our family and friends back in our beloved homeland who are in need of medical equipment.
