#MSCU839727, 4/20/11 container number 6 in 2011 was shipped to Uruguay. This was a furniture project for the Pan American Development Foundation of Washington, DC and it contained over 150 chairs, office furniture, supplies and patient room furniture. Pilar and staff from PADF were present for the load, so it was a very fun day, and this container was perfectly loaded by our Moises. We were all amazed at the huge volume of furniture that was able to fit into a container. HunterdonHospital in Flemington, New Jersey, and Holy Spirit in Camp Hill, our two most distant donors, provided the high quality furniture donations for this South American country.
We have a long history of working with PADF all over Latin America.
#MEDU849244, 4/5/11 Haiti once again captures our attention with this pediatric project for the Mirebelis Hospital and Partners in Health. Twelve large hospital cribs from CHOP were shipped and fantastic stainless steel basinets from St. Francis Hospital of Wilmington, Delaware.
Also Owens and Minor’s warehouse in Deptford New Jersey donated several pallets of new Kimberly Clark surgeon’s gowns and new disposable drapes. Good bedding came from the Cancer Treatment Centers of America’s hospital in the JuniataPark section of Philadelphia. Supplies shipped came from MMI Medical Ministry International of Parkesburg, PA, and the St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children. And Lancaster General provided large bins of OR supplies.
