Healey International Relief Foundation sponsors container for the Seruba Hospital in Sierra Leone

Container #TCLU 185443 0, Seal #103927.

The Healey International Relief Foundation heard about Mission Relief Services, and asked for our assistance in helping them with a container project for the Seruba Hospital in Sierra Leone. We collected beans, food stuffs, and hand carts from the Gain (Global Aid Network) warehouse near Lancaster PA, and we collected a truckload of items from the Healey offices in Lumberton, New Jersey. The container was shipped from Coatesville, and Healey Foundation directors were there to photograph and to witness the loading of this container to a new hospital in Africa. Physical Therapy items, toys, lawnmowers, bicycles, and many other medical surgical items were included in this shipment. It is always a plus to work with a group that has a significant presence in a country, and a new facility to equip.

Container for Urtima African Union of Columbus, Ohio that has recipients and projects in Guinea.

Container# PONU 782679 3, Seal# TR 043558.

Urtima is an African Union or an association from Columbus, Ohio that has recipients and projects in Guinea. We shipped this container with hand picked items that their team isolated, and we included a large number of mattresses, furnishings, and equipment. This shipment also included a huge supply of protective wear such as gloves, gowns and over 100 cs. of face masks, so it was designed for Ebola prevention. Although containers are expensive, groups like Urtima believe that it is all part of the support that is needed to work internationally and to get something important accomplished in a short period of time.
