Canterbury District Health Board has welcomed a donation of free medical and safety products. Auckland based company Fabricell is distributing free medical and safety products valued at over $300,000 to Christchurch hospitals, clinics, recovery centres, rest homes, clean-up operations and food shelters.

Fabricell's generous donation was made immediately after the February earthquake in order to help towards the recovery and restoration of the city, its people and community. The products, ranging from coveralls, gloves, sanitiser, wet weather gear, fire retardant and Hi Vis apparel are being stored in a Sydenham warehouse and available immediately.

The products have been donated free of charge to local organisations such as the Canterbury DHB, the Public Health Unit of the Ministry of Health and the Christchurch City Council along with Civil Defence and other organisations in need of medical and safety product and apparel.

Canterbury District Health Board Jock Muir says the board is delighted with the donation of 70 pallets filled with the products.

"Fabricell have very generously donated these items to organisations assisting in earthquake reaction and recovery as well as those affected "

Tony Tamakehu from The Chain Man LTD organised the Sydenham warehouse for storage of the pallets and Civil Defence will be distributing gear through 'Tom Thumb' who will package up orders and send out to the organisations.
