Mission Relief Ships Container to Honduras

8/28/09: Container #CBFU 3439218 This very special container was shipped to our friends at Hospital San Lorenzo in southern Honduras. The hospital has been completely renovated, and Mission Relief and CARE are equipping the entire facility. A C-arm x-ray and surgical equipment from the orthopedic surgeon Dr. David Matthews of Lancaster was shipped in this container. Furnishings and additional items were collected in Baltimore. Marvin Hernandez and his young son Steven participated in the loading of the container, and they could choose what they wanted for the hospital. Steven’s English is excellent, and it was very special having a young Honduran present.

Mission Relief Ships Container to Haiti

8/4/09: Container# MSCU 869251 Hospital Sacre Coeur in Milot Haiti was the recipient of this July container. This well established hospital is supported by the Crudem Foundation of Boston, Massachusetts, and they were the sponsors of this shipment. Mission Relief provided hurricane relief supplies and logistical support for the hospital in 2008, and this year we shipped a full container right out of Coatesville directly to the hospital. St. Francis Hospital of Wilmington, Delaware provided a large quantity of linen for this project.
