The Urology Hospital donated a Sunlift e175 Hydraulic Hoist to the Joan Mary Care Centre, Pretoria, an essential assistive product* for an often-overlooked disabled community.

“Disability affects the lives of many. Globally, over 2.5 billion people need assistive products* such as mobility aids that will give them much deserved dignity and confidence, whilst assisting caregivers. A hoist will make a significant difference in the lives of individuals at the care centre as a long-term, safe solution that will allow caregivers to move disabled kids around easily without any harm.”, says Malcolm Anthony, CEO of The Urology Hospital.

The centre, established by Elize Edgerton in 2014, for those with multiple disabilities, currently houses and supports ten disabled children and adults. Elize and her husband converted their home into the care centre which runs as a fully registered NPC.

“We’re very grateful for the support we’ve received so far and what was accomplished over the last eight years”, says Elize Edgerton, CEO of Joan Mary Care Centre. “There are ways you can support the Joan Mary Care Centre and disabled community as we require financial assistance, consumables, assistive products* and other things not available within our budget.”
