The Olympic ceremonies have often been criticized for being extravagant and lavish, particularly in light of both national and international economic decline.

In a laudable move, however, more than 300 hospital beds which were featured in the Olympics opening ceremony to celebrate the UK’s NHS will be donated to hospitals in Tunisia. A team of fifteen volunteers will dismantle the beds, which were covered in LED bedding, batteries, and wiring in order to spell out the words “NHS” (National Health Service) and “GOSH” (Great Ormond Street Hospital) in LED lights during Danny Boyle’s tribute. The NHS was featured during the opening ceremonies as one of Britain’s proudest achievements.

Boyle said the NHS was an “amazing thing to celebrate” and dedicated an entire portion of his show, featuring more than 600 real-life nurses and other healthcare workers.

The beds, which were donated by events company Tait Technologies, will be shipped and delivered to the Hospital Habis Burguiba De Medenine and the Hospital de Taouine in Tunisia. The beds will play an important role in treating patients.
