The American Medical Resources Foundation's mission is to improve health care around the world by donating medical equipment and supplies to hospitals that serve the poor in underdeveloped and developing countries of the world.
Morton Donates Hospital Beds to Guatemala
In collaboration with the humanitarian organization American Medical Resources Foundation (AMRF), Morton Hospital was pleased to recently donate 20 mechanical hospital beds to help support patient care at health care facilities in the country of Guatemala, where these types of mechanical beds are highly desired. The beds previously served elderly patients at the Taunton Nursing Home facility before being donated to Morton Hospital to support our patient demand during the COVID pandemic. The beds will now go on to assist the less fortunate in Guatemala where they have also suffered from the COVID pandemic as well as devastating hurricanes in 2020.
Our very own Tom Magliocchetti, Sr. Director of Facilities & Operations, is a co-founder of AMRF, which has shipped more than 500 containers of used but fully functional medical equipment and supplies donated by American hospitals to underdeveloped and developing countries across the globe over the past three decades.
Guatemala Needs Your Help!
As you know, the Northern part of Guatemala has been badly devastated by Hurricanes ETA and IOTA. AMRF needs your help! We are working with our partner, Asociación Civil Proyecto Salud y Vida, who have quickly instituted logistics and established distribution in order to help those affected. They are in need of the necessary funds to purchase the groceries that will assist the many families who have lost everything! Please help AMRF in providing these communities and families with what they need to survive such devastation. Each bag of groceries only cost $13 and will provide each family with the basic food items that they need!
