MedShare Ships Container to Ecuador

Ecuador

On April 5th, MedShare’s Western Regional Distribution Center loaded and shipped out another 40-foot container with hundreds of medical supplies destined for Canton Gonzalo Pizarro, Ecuador.

The Canton is located in the Amazonian province of Sucumbios, where medical supplies and trained healthcare practitioners are scarce resources to be found.  The items sent will be put to use at the small, 6-bed medical center in the town of Lumbaqui that serves local low-resource families from all over the Canton.
