Mission Relief Ships Container to the Dominican Republic

5/6/10:  Container# EMCU 9603609. The Dominican Republic has felt many of the after effects of the Haitian earthquake, and we shipped to the children’s hospital Dario Contreras in Santo Domingo.  Wheelchairs from the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia were included, and many cases of new pajamas from HCSC of Allentown.  The COR Foundation of Germany and the Netherlands was the sponsor of the shipment, and the recipients were delighted with the results. The greatest beneficiaries were those with Leprosy (Hansen’s disease) in a nearby hospital at San Cristobel. Patients, who had to be carried, received wheelchairs, walkers, crutches and other walking aids. We received great photographs of those residents who could now “rise up and walk.” This container was one of the most rewarding shipments of the year, and we need to remember Leprosy is not a biblical disease! Also thanks to MMI or Medical Ministries International of Parkesburg for all their help.
