Hospital Bed Race

They’re racing hospital beds!

At 10 am. July 7th, 2007 on the harbour front, Oxfam is hosting an event to mark the halfway-point of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). And it involves people pushing hospital beds.

There will include 8 teams of 5 members (one member in the bed and the others pushing the bed) and each team will represent a different MDG.

In 2000 world leaders from 191 countries set eight goals that would eliminate extreme poverty and hunger by 2015. However, a brand new UN progress report has revealed the world is failing to alleviate hunger, cut infant mortality and increase access to clean water and sanitation.
