In 2023, a Drager BabyRoo Open Care Warmer was donated to Orange Base Hospital with the proceeds of the Orange Running Festival 2023.

Separately, 3 pieces of equipment were provided to Orange Base Hospital's Special Care Nursury in 2022 thanks to Glenn Atkinson's 'Push from the Bush' local fundraising:
- A Panda Resuscitation Cot 
- A Bililux Phototherapy Machine
- A 'Baby Leo'Humidicrib

But additional advanced neonatal equipement is needed in the region to give premature and critically ill babies the best chance of survival.

C'mon, let's Paint Orange Purple on 9-10 March 2024!
