Belfast Live set out to raise £25k for The Welcome Organisation with their opening eyes on homelessness campaign to help purchase a mobile health unit to bring much needed assistance to the the homeless community in Belfast. 

The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is now kitted out and ready to hit the road after a slight delay due to COVID-19, with the help from many local businesses. 

The Sprinter has been kitted out to the highest spec by Total Van Solutions Mallusk, and with a number of unique features makes in the first of it's kind in Northern Ireland.  The space is divided into two areas, a waiting area and treatment area which can be closed off to maintain privacy when treatment is being carried out. It is also equipped with a hot and cold water system, a fridge to hold pharmaceuticals, and a CCTV system in the waiting area and outside the van. 

The mobile health unit will bring treatment to people who otherwise wouldn’t get it.
