Sunshine Linus have  Memorandum of Understanding with the Sunshine Coast Private Hospital. We were nominated for our work with the Hospital in reusing and recycling hospital waste (Kymguard). Kymguard is a man made fabric which is used for protecting equipment when being sterilised. The fabric can be sewn, doesn’t fray and has a decent amount of strength, thus making it a useful fabric to use for some of the items we make at Sunshine Linus.
In our partnership with the hospital, we designed and made operating theatre gowns for operating theatres in third world countries and are currently making medicine carry bags for patients who are discharged from the hospital.
Below is the Award presented by the Hospital CEO at today's meeting.

Hope to see you all at our next meeting on 25 January, 2016.
