On August 23, 2011, we shipped a container out of our Western Region Distribution Center to Candelaria Municipal Hospital in the Philippines. The container was delivered to Candelaria on September 22, and we received a message from their local Rotary Club. They also included a wonderful set of photos which show the staff and patients who will benefit from the supplies and equipment we sent.
Please take moment to read the letter and glance through the photos below:
Greetings of peace and joy! The container van arrived here in Candelaria last Sept.22, 2011. The delivery truck could not go near the hospital because the road from the highway going to the hospital is too narrow for it to make a turn at two corners. So we just have to parked the truck in a gasoline station by the highway not far from the hospital and unloaded it from there in a smaller truck. Attached are the pictures taken during unloading plus few pictures inside the hospital.
On behalf of the Rotary Club of Candelaria, we would like to sincerely and profoundly thank you and Mr. Chuck and of course MedShare for all the help you have extended to Candelaria. I am very sure it will help our community a lot. Should you need more information, please do not hesitate to contact me. God bless.
