Project Flamingo is an incredible initiative started by Dr Liana Roodt in 2010 in Cape Town, South Africa. Dr Roodt recognised the dire need to help newly diagnosed patients with breast cancer, by shortening their waiting time for life saving surgery. This truly proactive NGO arranges ‘catch up’ surgeries over weekends, with the help of a team of saintly volunteers.
Currently these surgeries are taking place at select public hospitals in Western and Eastern Cape. To date more than 600 patients have received surgeries through this initiative.
Medinox donates a portion of profits from the sale of mx Pink Nitrile Gloves as well as Fabric Flamingo masks on a monthly basis. To read more about Project Flamingo, please visit www.projectflamingo.co.za
