Plymouth, MN – November 16, 2012 – Celebrating collaboration that crosses global and cultural boundaries, Miga Solutions and the Miga Solutions Foundation recently worked together with COSAD, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving healthcare in Tanzania.
Over the past few months, Miga Solutions Foundation staff members worked alongside COSAD Executive Director, Smart Baitani, to identify and obtain key items needed to fill a container for a new clinic that will provide medical care to the Bukoba, Tanzania residents.
As part of this effort, COSAD invited members of the community choir from Bukoba town to come to Miga’s facility to help prepare and package the equipment for its journey to Tanzania. As a way to give thanks to Miga and the Miga Solutions Foundation’s efforts, the choir unexpectedly performed some of their songs. Here is a video of the performance:
“What an amazing, beautiful and powerful experience for our team,” said Peter Robson, Miga Solutions CEO and Chairman of the Miga Solutions Foundation. We are extraordinarily proud of the impact the equipment we are able to donate can provide to communities like Bukoba town. It is a rare treat that we get to meet and share cultural experiences with the customers of our charitable efforts. The music and positive energy shared by the Bukoba community choir is a lasting reminder of the positive impact we can have on healthcare across the globe.”
Established to help support expanded access to healthcare resources internationally, the Miga Solutions Foundation donates surplus medical equipment to healthcare providers, agencies, and charitable organizations around the world, for communities in need.

About Miga Solutions
Since 2004, Miga Solutions has been helping hospitals generate significant annual savings by lowering the costs of their entire medical equipment lifecycle.
Hospitals in the US spend nearly $73B every year to purchase and maintain medical equipment. Miga’s experience indicates that $9B of this annual spending can be saved if hospitals just had access to the information and tools they need to confidently identify and implement more cost effective equipment spending decisions.
