Youth with a mission (YWAM) is a global Christian movement operating in more than 1000 locations in over 180 countries, with over 25000 fulltime staff since 1960.

YWAM is decentralised in structure; each centre is financially and legally autonomous, allowing locations to adapt and serve the specific needs of the community.

YWAM Medical ships“ Australia (YWAM MSA) is a Christian charity that aims to serve, build and care and connect with individuals and communities.

YWAM is actively developing communities by addressing the healthcare and training needs in Papua New Guinea. The ship Pacific Link™ is a charity Medical ship that operates out of Townsville and travels to PNG with a full compliment of Medical equipment and supplies with trained and untrained volunteers.

They visit PNG generally staying for 6 months each visit offering on-board Dental and Ophthalmic treatment to the remote regions of PNG. Biomedex were approached by our accredited Melag Service provider MOB Enterprises in Townsville™ asking if we could assist with replacing their old and unreliable Seimans Validator and Statim™ sterilisers with the Melag. Earlier this year MOB Enterprises places a substantial order for a number of Melag sterilisers and within this order package we managed to add an additional steriliser for this charity ship.

Brian Saxby of MOB Enterprises then offered his services (at no cost) and installed this steriliser.

YWAM ships team have since contacted myself to thank us for our donation and since sent us the attached thank you certificate.
