For a number of years, the Amitofo Care Centre (ACC), a Taiwanese charity organisation, has distributed durable medical equipment, medicine and clothing to people in need across Africa.

Thanks to the ongoing working relationship between the City of Cape Town’s speaker, Dirk Smit, and the local Taipei Liaison Office helmed by Dean Wang, the City recently received another consignment of medical equipment.

The Cape Town Taipei Liaison Office helps to facilitate the receipt of containers stocked with durable medical equipment such as wheelchairs, walkers and commodes.

The City has been a grateful recipient of these donations for many years. With the inclusion of the recent donations, the Taipei Liaison Office has since 2012 provided the City with a total of 1104 wheelchairs, 594 commodes and 440 walkers worth hundreds of thousands of rand.

In a statement, the City said the donations will assist in instilling a sense of pride and independence for elderly and disabled people. It said disabled people and the elderly were in the past denied access to these aids due to long waiting lists at state hospitals.

“I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the Cape Town Taipei Liaison Office for their generous and continued assistance and donations over the years. The durable medical equipment handed over today will once again go a long way towards bringing comfort to a number of our most vulnerable residents. This donation of much-needed mobility equipment and other items of comfort helps us to deliver on our promise of promoting individual and community welfare. The 200 powder-coated wheelchairs, 50 walkers and 50 commodes will assist a number of our most vulnerable residents who have special needs,” said Smit.

The Amitofo Care Centre is a charity organisation founded by the Venerable Huei Li in Taiwan in the early 1990s. The Venerable Huei Li is known as the ‘African monk’. The idea of the care centre originated from the Venerable Huei Li’s compassionate heart and desire to help people in Africa who are battling with terminal illness and those living in extreme poverty.
