Container Shipped for Ebola Support in Guinea

BhantalContainer #MRKU 405141 6, Seal#680008.

This second container in April was shipped to Guinea, and was one of the seven containers that were ordered by Pottal II Bhantal of Bronx, New York for Guinea. Stretchers, wheelchairs, medical supplies, therapy equipment and protective wear filled this container. The demand for sanitation and protective wear is still strong in the Ebola region, and while Ebola may be eradicated in one area, it may spring forth in another city or town. We are just grateful to be able to ship to West Africa, and to have viable force on the ground to distribute our products throughout the country. The results of our shipments over the last year to Guinea have been very positive. Once again we will be shipping to Guinea on June 3, 2015.

 

Container shipped to the moderator of the Presbyterian Church in Liberia

Container #ACLU 964860 5, Seal#0229139.

This container to Liberia was shipped to the moderator of the Presbyterian Church in Liberia. This container contained not only medical supplies and equipment, but also a large inventory of books, bibles, hymnals, and other spiritually focused publications for the Presbyterian churches in Liberia. Donations from the Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church library, and from the library of Mission Relief filled boxes and milk crates of books for this mission. Africa is a continent without books, and when the opportunity arises to ship books, we pack as many books as we can to help the English speaking reader and for the pastors to find new materials to draw from. Mission Relief has a long history of working with Presbyterian Missions, so this was an exciting project with wonderful results. A Reliance Foundation sponsored shipment
