MedShare's CEO and President, Charles Redding said, "Being involved in this project means that we have the opportunity to make healthcare better for families now, and to strengthen Malawi's health system for future generations. We are proud to know that our supplies and equipment will empower the medical professionals at Queen Elizabeth to better care for children in need." In addition to donating supplies and equipment, MedShare's Director of Biomedical Equipment Training & Repair Service, Eben Amstrong, will travel to Malawi to train Queen Elizabeth's engineers and technicians in how to use the biomedical equipment that has been donated. This training is provided as a part of The Coca-Cola Africa Foundation's Sharehope program.
