Mission Relief Ships Container to Port-au-Prince

Container #CARU 990418 3, Seal#032568.

Dr. Michel François is the director of the Haitian Coalition of Philadelphia. In 2013 Mission Relief was honored by the Haitian Coalition for our years of humanitarian service to Haiti, and we have prepared shipments to Haiti for Dr. François. The March container was shipped to the ministry of health in Port-au-Prince, and was to be divided between hospitals in Port-au-Prince, and the hospital at Port-au-Paix (port of peace). It is more difficult to work in Haiti than it is in Africa and Dr. Francois travelled to Haiti to help clear customs and distribute the contents. There were plenty of items for two hospitals, and we hope to ship a second container to Haiti later this year.

Pottal FII Bhanthal LeLou Solidarity engages Mission Relief Services to prepare containers to help with Guinea’s Ebola Crisis.

Container #MSKU 876960 9, Seal#1098849.

Pottal FII Bhanthal LeLou Solidarity of Avon, Indiana and the Bronx, New York is an association of professionals from Conrakry, Guinea Africa. This group has engaged Mission Relief Services to prepare several containers over the last year to serve various hospitals throughout Guinea, and to help Guinea’s medical community with the Ebola epidemic. Visitors from Atlanta, Chicago, Indiana, and the Bronx have visited on several occasions to help with their container projects, and to add personal effects to the shipments. Guinea is one of the largest countries in West Africa, and its fluid borders with Liberia and Sierra Leone have made the fight against Ebola more challenging. We will be shipping again to Guinea on June 3rd.
