Tunis — More than 300 hospital beds which featured in the Olympic Games opening ceremony, to celebrate the British National Health Service (NHS), are to be donated to Tunisia, reported on Sunday British daily newspaper The Guardian.
The luminous beds made a special appearance during British film-director Danny Boyle's tribute to the British health service, spelling out the words NHS and GOSH (Great Ormond Street Hospital) in LED lights.
A team of 15 volunteers will spend three days removing LED bedding, batteries and wiring from all 320 showpieces, to turn them into functioning hospital beds.
Given by events company Tait Technologies, these beds will be shipped in containers before being delivered to the Habib Bourguiba Hospital in Medenine and the Tataouine Hospital where they will play a valuable role in treating patients.
It is worth reminding that Danny Boyle's brilliant film-making career was marked by the numerous awards he got for his 2008 film Slumdog Millionaire.
