Hope and Mercy Charity of Moldova ~ August 22, 2012

#TCNU-998002, 8/22/12. Hope and Mercy Charity of Moldova received the fifth container shipped from Mission Relief in 2012. This children’s ministry and charity is based in one of the poorest countries in the former Soviet Union. The large, old hospitals in this land locked country bordering on the Ukraine, need just about everything, and Mark Fashevsky has visited Mission Relief twice over the past three years to pick out materials that are useful for the both the hospitals and the orphanages and homes that Hope and Mercy support. By using the State Department intermediary Counterpart International of Washington DC, we were able to fund this container for Moldova, and renew one of our favorite projects in a very desperate country. The vulnerability of the children is alarming, but with Mark’s dedication, and help from churches such as Calvary Church of Lionville, we were able to make measurable improvements.

Salesian Missions of New Rochelle, New York ~ August 2, 2012

#MOFU 077671, 8/2/12, Our fourth container of the year was shipped to Lima, Peru for the Salesian Missions of New Rochelle, New York. The Salesians had built a new center for the elderly and infirmed, and we were able to equip the center with a variety of institutional furnishings and medical supplies and equipment. The feedback was excellent, and we produced a brochure with the photography sent illustrating the delivery and unloading of the shipment. Also Temple University donation of stainless steel dietary carts was instrumental for the center, and we shipped 90 mattresses from the York Hospital of York, PA. New clothing came from VS Sports of Manhattan, and lots of linen from our regular hospital donors. This was our second container of the year for the Salesians.
