Today, Monday, December 14, 2009 MedShare’s Southeastern Regional Distribution Center in Decatur, Georgia loaded and shipped a 40 foot container of medical supplies and equipment donations destined for HONDURAS. The KIMBERLY-CLARK CORPORATION and FOUNDATION sponsored this donation and selected the Honduran organization “LIGA CONTRA EL CÁNCER ‘DR. OSCAR RAUDALES B.’” as the recipient. The Liga provides cancer screenings, treatments, and emotional support to oncology patients of limited means and their families. The Liga depends heavily on volunteer medical professionals and donations of supplies and funding to be able to offer low-cost and/or free services to patients.
The MedShare container that shipped today included over 1,000 individual pieces of medical equipment and supplies for the Liga that will go directly to their cancer treatment centers, including: stethoscopes, an ureteroscope, an electrosurgical unit, an x-ray film illuminator, a computer and computer accessories, nebulizers, surgical sponges, surgical steel instruments, enteral feeding kits, bedside commode seats, Personal Energy Transport carts, oxygen masks and tubing, and much more!
