Mission Relief Ships Container to Honduras

5/16/07: Container# TPHU 469788 Z. Steve Mentzer of The Central American Relief Effort, Lancaster, PA was able to find a Canadian sponsor for a Honduran container shipped out of Mission Relief, Coatesville. Union Rescue Mission and Shirley of the Universal Aide Society in British Columbia funded a container to our first Lady distribution networks in Honduras. Many items from the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia including a large Nintendo set were on this container for the children of Honduras during their hospital stays.

Spring Update

Americans have a deep sense of caring. And from the bottom of South America to the former White Russia, Mission Relief Services helps spread America’s greatest asset, the benevolence of her people.

From the beginning of 2005 to the Spring of 2007, Mission Relief Services has seen a dramatic growth in our operations and outreach. Over one 20 month period, we shipped out thirty, 40 foot container loads of surgical and hospital material to a host of very appreciative and responsive recipients.

Mission Relief has witnessed a big expansion of our donor base, and the number of people participation in our medical missions. We have added new hospital donors, a truck and two drivers, and a new cast of participants and volunteers in international relief.

We have added planned work days with teams coming from churches and schools. We have supported wheelchair missions, and computers for Costa Rica. We have helped other non-profits with their surgical and institutional projects, and have made products available to any group that wants to expend their outreach.

Our conservative estimate is that we shipped out $650,000 worth of top quality hospital supplies and furnishings in 2006. In 2006 we shipped out 18 tractor trailer loads of material, and we average 1-3 containers per month in outbound activity.

Thank you donors and friends, as you have made this possible.

Mission Relief Ships Container to Honduras

5/10/07: Container# CBFU 3457799. The Lancaster Council of Churches teamed up with Mission Relief Services to ship a container to the CCD and the First Lady of Honduras. Xiomara Castro de Zelaya is the First Lady of Honduras. She and her aides facilitate the importation and distribution of the medical aid that we ship. Women leaders from the hospitals come to the warehouse and choose the equipment they want. They are very happy with what we send.
