Weʼre raising £415 to Give the Hungarian Hems a treat! Helicopter Heroes of Hungary, I asked them one thing they would like... a London HEMS mug. £11.40 x 36 😊
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Magyar Legimento or the Hungarian Air Ambulance is responsible for providing 7 Air Assets to the whole of Hungary.
They are a Non-Profit organisation supported by the Ministry of Health.
This service carries out more than 2500 missions every year with one Critical Care Paramedic and One doctor on board.
I spent 8 days with the teams in April and found out how hard these guys work for such little money. A lot of the equipment is recycled because of the cost and lack of funding: Laryngoscopes, boogies - you name it and its reused. In Hungary there is a lot more trauma related incidents and a high suicide rate.
I asked the teams if you could be given one thing what would you like?
A London HEMS mug!
I have spoken with London Hems and have been given a quote for 36 mugs to be made/personalised. I will then take them to Hungary Aug/Sept.
Can we give something back to these Helicopter Heroes?
