MRI Scanner


Dear Friends

It is my great honour and privilege to launch my Patrons MRI Appeal for the UK based MDCF charity.

MDCF are fund raising to obtain a MRI diagnostic machine to support an outstanding charitable hospital project in rural India.

The Hospital treats the poorest children and adults in the surrounding area. To date 70,000 patients have been seen over a period of 6 years.

A large number of these patients need MRI scanning to assist in the accurate diagnosing of head injuries, cancers and spinal injuries.

Currently they are having to turn away seriously ill patients and send them to other hospitals for MRI scans. The journey to the nearest hospital performing MRI is expensive and medically hazardous. Most patients cannot afford the journey or the MRI scan and as a result become much more seriously ill.

MDCF and I are trying to improve the medical care of these desperately ill people.

Please help and donate with an open heart. Our target is £500,000. We can do it.

Thank you.

Our Mission

This charitable hospital is a non-profit health-care facility in the developing world. In recent years, the project has grown to the current hospital with expanding services and upgrading of facilities. The expansion programme has emphasised the introduction of new diagnostic services and the raising of the quality of care to international standards. We strive to maintain a self-sufficient service offering support to the local community. We are fully aware of continuing our independent status so the local community is not reliant upon our service alone.
