Ecuador Receives Container of Medical Supplies

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

Dole Ocean Cargo Express generously donated the shipping of this container to the Ecuadorian port, including the tractor-trailer container. Below is a photo of the container before it left our warehouse in San Leandro, CA.

We’re happy to report that the container arrived in Ecuador the week of May 9. The hospital recipient sent photos of the container being unloaded, and we wanted to share these as they illustrate the full circle of MedShare’s work. See below…

These photos show the folks on both the giving and receiving end of MedShare’s work.  Thanks again to Dole Ocean Cargo Express for providing the container and shipping, and to everyone else for their hard work in making this happen!
