Nigerian Success Story

On 17 February 2017, a 40’ High Cube ocean container was loaded at the Mission Relief Services (MRS) warehouse in Parkesburg PA and shipped to the West African country of Nigeria.  This container load took several months to be approved for shipment due to stringent documentation requirements by the Government of Nigeria.  The shipment was coordinated by Mr. Collins Ibeto (photo attached) and went out under the auspices of the Obodoukwu Union of North America (OUNA) of Torrance CA.  The shipment was sent to the Nzuko Obodoukwu Clan (OUNA’s affiliate in Nigeria) to outfit a new community hospital it was opening in the Imo State of Nigeria.  The contents of the container included several hospital beds/mattresses, stretchers, examination tables, examination lamps, laboratory equipment, office furniture, an infant incubator, a refrigerator-freezer and a plethora of other essential medical-surgical accessories and supplies.  The hospital was fully operational by mid-2018 and plans are now in the works to expand the scope of its medical services through the assistance of MRS.
