4/27/07: Container# TRLU 408229 9. Our freight forwarder friends at International Services Corporation in Washington, DC had us develop a medical shipment to the Global Hope Academy in Borama, Awdal, Somalia. This container sponsored by the EELO Foundation of Somerset, NJ had a wide variety of medical supplies, equipment and furnishings for this school and hospital campus in Somalia. Steven Druhot of ISC or International Services Corp ships humanitarian cargoes worldwide, and is very knowledgeable shipping into Ethiopia and Africa.
4/24/07: Container# TRLU 658381 2. After Pilar Heraud of the Pan American Development Foundation (PADF) returned from Honduras in March, her photos told the story of the Honduran hospitals close to the port city of Puerto Cortes, and Mission Relief always uses this port. The hospitals and the orphanages needed many improvements, and this container to Hospital Leonardo Martinez in San Pedro Sula provided lab equipment such as centrifuges, and many other useful items for their facility. We have received photos of our equipment in use, and photography is one of our best guides of performance.
4/12/07: Container# CBFU 3450027. Mission Relief Services loves to work in Honduras. This Chiquita container went to the office of the First Lady, and three different entities shared in the distribution. The CCD or Christian Coalition for Development, the First Lady’s Projects, and the Rotary Club of San Miguel all received materials. The First Presbyterian Church of Lancaster, PA and the Rotary Club of Lancaster, PA were also sponsors, and the economies of scale are in place between Mission Relief and Honduras, Central America.
We have a steady stream of very good medical equipment and supplies flowing into our warehouse. As more institutions realize the value of our humanitarian aid service, the quantity and qualily of goods increases.
We are overwhelmed at our warehouse. This overflow of supplies allow for some great volunteer opportunities.
Every second Saturday of every month we will be in the warehouse directing volunteers on the sorting, boxing and preparing items to be sent to some very needy hospital or clinics in underdeveloped countries around the world. Please consider organizing a youth group or any group to join us in our effort to organize the warehouse.
