Leading queue management solutions provider, Tensator, has donated access control products to the international charity Mercy Ships which offers free medical care and humanitarian aid to some of the world’s poorest people.
Tensator, world leader of queue management solutions, produces a large range of crowd control, access control solutions, in-queue merchandising, electronic call forward, media display and display and signage products to companies around the globe.
Mercy Ships operates the world’s largest charity hospital ship, the Africa Mercy, currently docked in Sierra Leone. The ship, a former Danish rail ferry, is staffed by an international crew of dedicated volunteers from over 40 nations ranging from seamen, engineers, surgeons, doctors and nurses who give up their time to help save the lives of others.
Louise Francis, Marketing Manager for Tensator, said, “I am delighted to announce our donation to Mercy Ships. Tensator has offered a number of wall mounted barriers for use on the Africa Mercy to prevent having to close fire doors multiple times each day whilst the floors are being cleaned, creating a high visibility barrier on each entrance.
“Corporate social responsibility is an extremely important principle for Tensator. We are therefore pleased to provide some practical support for this charity which, through the good work of the hundreds of selfless volunteers, provides thousands of free surgeries and medical care each year to some of the poorest countries in Africa.”
Judy Polkinhorn, Executive Director of Mercy Ships UK, said, “We are pleased and thankful to receive this generous donation from Tensator. Donations such as this have a real impact upon the work carried out by our team of volunteers and is vital to ensuring Mercy Ships can continue to help and provide care to those less fortunate.”
Over the last 30 years, Mercy Ships has worked in more than 70 countries providing services valued at £530million and impacting about 2.9million people.
Mercy Ships, the international charity has treated more than 520,000 patients in village medical and dental clinics, performed more than 56,000 surgeries and completed over 1,000 community development projects focusing on water and sanitation, education, infrastructure development and agriculture.
