A couple of weeks ago we reported the story of a big electric wheelchair and hoist which was sent to Honiara, Solomon Islands. Organised by our former member Col Laurenson and the Medical Repurposing Network, it was transported out of Amberley Air Base by the Australian Royal Air Force. 
 
Col has sent us an update with pictures of the recipient, Joel Teheroha, a young lad who has suffered from severe cerebral palsy since birth. The story also featured prominently in the local press - click on this link to view the report in the Solomon Star, the island's daily newspaper.
 
Give yourself a pat on the back, Col! Good to see you are still very active in helping disadvantaged people in developing countries.
