Fonds D’Aide Universelle and Prolonge, Haiti

Container #MSCU 855802 45G1, seal# Keller 0128732

This shipment of over 220 mattresses and new clothes went to the Fonds D’Aide Universelle and Prolonge, Haiti. We prepared this container for Pastor Bob LeFranc and the South Bay Church of Tampa, Florida. Pastor Bob travels frequently to Haiti, and the items went to his 400 bed girls school about 20 miles from Port-au-Prince.

Donated Medical Equipment Aids Patients Across the Globe

Mission-Relief-PAHPenn Medicine is known for its state-of-the-art equipment and cutting-edge technologies. So what is to be done with medical equipment that is still functional, but no longer considered at the top of its game? Earlier this year, Pennsylvania Hospital opened the doors of its off-site storage space to Mission Relief Services where currently idle — but still useful — medical equipment can be put to good use in hospitals and health clinics around the world.

“We often no longer have use for this equipment. It’s great to be able to donate it to others who are in dire need,” said Feargal Roche, director, Value Analysis in PeriOp Materials and Clinical Engineering at PAH.

Partnering with several institutions, Mission Relief Services has donated thousands of useful medical supply items, furnishings and equipment around the world. Donations from PAH will be shipped out to missions teams across the US first and will then make their way to children’s hospitals and clinics from Siberia and Moldova to birthing clinics in Central American and clinics in Haiti.

“We remain focused on recycling donations to the areas of greatest need. We are so grateful for Pennsylvania Hospital’s contributions,” said Jim Harrison from Mission Relief Services.
