Weekend Herald - - News -

A fam­ily of life­like med­i­cal manikins that can cry and cough have pulled in the largest ever do­na­tion to Auck­land’s Star­ship na­tional chil­dren’s hos­pi­tal — $9 mil­lion. The gift from a fam­ily trust as­so­ci­ated with New Zealand medicines firm Dou­glas Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals has been used to set up an en­dow­ment fund for train­ing chil­dren’s health work­ers. The Star­ship Foun­da­tion said the do­na­tion from the Dou­glas Char­i­ta­ble Trust was the largest sin­gle gift in its 27-year his­tory.
