Mission Relief Services is having a very exciting year. In February we moved our warehouse operations a few miles west to the former Medical Ministry International warehouse on Rt 372 in Parkesburg. We have shipped out twelve 40′ containers since February 1st, 2016. This facility under the leadership of Matt Bonk is designed to produce and expedite our specialized cargoes of medical humanitarian aid to mission projects.
We are also grateful for all the hospitals, and our other product donors for their constant and growing participation in our outreach. The quality of materials that we ship continue to create a demand out in the field, as people and groups develop projects for their homelands. In 2016 we have shipped containers to Haiti, Mali, Burkina-Faso, Ghana, Benin, Pakistan, Sierra Leone. and Cameroon. Panama and Gambia next.
We would also like to thank St. Elizabeth’s Parish of Chester Springs for their “day of service” in April, and twenty seven people worked. Also a group came on July 8th from the First Presbyterian church in Phoenixville, and we packed linens and sorted medical supplies. Thank you volunteers!
