In partnership with Catholic Medical Mission Board (CMMB), two 40 foot containers of electric hospital beds and mattress donations for the economically developing world were shipped out of MedShare’s Southeastern Distribution Center two weeks ago.
The first of the two containers shipped from MedShare on Thursday, February 22, and is carrying 50 beds and mattresses to be delivered to Lautech Teaching Hospital in Oyo State, Nigeria. Lautech is a newly-built government facility incorporated into the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, and it will cater to the poor and underserved populations of Oyo State. This is the final installment of a four-container shipment of beds for the hospital.
The second container of beds shipped from MedShare on Friday, February 25, and will be going to the Fundación Salvadoreña para la Salud y Desarollo Humano (FUSAL), a humanitarian organization in El Salvador. FUSAL operates nutritional, educational, human rights and health programs in El Salvador and supports hundreds of Ministry of Health hospitals and health posts. This is the second of a three-container shipment of beds to FUSAL.
