CAN YOU HELP

Our thanks to the many friends and supporters who have contributed with donations, various services and support in the creation of Meentheena.

Donations

As Meentheena is a non-government/not for profit organisation any donations offered would be greatly appreciated.

Medical Items

The following is a “wish list” of items required to set up the Medical Room, we are approaching some Private Hospitals and medical suppliers for assistance, however if anyone can help in procuring any of the items on this list, we would be extremely grateful.

  • Oxygen bottle and fittings
  • Simple instruments:
    • Small First Aid Kits for vehicles
    • Splints
    • Neck brace
    • Bandages
    • Sterile dressings
    • Slings
    • Leg and arm supports
  • Medical disinfectant
  • Hand wash
  • Any general expendable medical goods such as band-aids and the like

 

 
We are now able to take advantage of the RFDS emergency medical services, medicines, and first aid items as well as having direct communication with emergency medical practitioners per telephone and internet, in caring for ill or injured people.

Materials Required

As Meentheena is a "not-for-profit" organisation, we are always on the lookout for equipment that may assist us in creating various structures and utilities on site to allow us to keep our friends and visitors as comfortable as possible.
​ 
If you are able to donate any of the following items, it would be greatly appreciated. 
Please contact Mr Terry Holl [Project Manager] on: 0400 517 506
​ 
MACHINERY & EQUIPMENT
​ 
*   Bobcats
*   Solar electric fence controller
​*   Fencing (approximately 1km fencing)
​ 
To be used for:
​ 
*   Main Camp site cleaning
*   Digging holes for uprights on various structures planned for the future
*   Digging trenches for burying cables and pipes, etc
*   Lifting heavy items during construction
*   Maintenance of existing tracks on property
*   Recovery of vehicles if necessary
*   Control of cattle and feral animals
​ 
Note:  We are not in a position to take on equipment that may require large repairs or servicing.  Basically, "if it's not working - we don't want it" unless there are only small repairs or upgrades required at the lowest cost possible.
​ 

Future Requirements

*   Fridges
*   Freezers
*   Heavy metal work type tools:
*   Angle grinders
Note:  These items can be left on site and workers will not have to convey their own tools to Meentheena for work parties.

Trade Tools & Equipment

 
Carpentry tools:
*   Hammers
*   Saws (both hand and electric)
*   Drills (electric)
Miscellaneous small goods:
*   Grease
*   Oil
*   Nails
*   Welding rods
*   Tin snips
*   Pop rivets
*   Tech screws, etc
Note:  The closest Bunnings/Mitre 10 or similar requires an all day round trip involving in excess of 600 kilometres, so to have these items on hand will save us time and money.
Please note that these donated items must be serviceable, otherwise we have no use for them (no use having a hammer with a broken handle or an electric drill close to the end of its life and ready to burn out at the first hole it drills).
