Hitachi Construction Machinery Australia (HCA) supports donations of medical equipment to pediatric hospitals in Australia. On December 15, 2016, HCA delivered a ventilator to the Children’s Hospital at Westmead, in Sydney, New South Wales.
HCA supports the activities of the Humpty Dumpty Foundation (HDF) in Australia. The foundation was established as a charitable organization to help children in 1996. HDF is engaged in delivering medical equipment to pediatric hospitals in Australia. One the HDF’s fundraising activities is the Humpty’s Wish List which features life-saving medical equipment expressly needed by the over 250 hospitals and infant wards in Australia. The list provides donors with the opportunity to choose a piece of medical equipment for a hospital of their choice. Donors submit their request to the foundation and are matched with a hospital. HCA endorses this activity and each year donates medical equipment worth AU$100,000.
In November and December, preparations were also underway for medical equipment, valued at AU$40,000, for four hospitals. HCA plans to continue to work with the Humpty Dumpty Foundation to carry out activities that put smiles on the faces of children in Australia.
