Wednesday, December 23, 2009, another 40 foot container of medical supplies and equipment for ECUADOR was shipped from MedShare’s Southeastern Regional Distribution Center. The items are going to be used at the central medical facility in QUININDÉ, which is located in the Northeastern region of the country. It is quite a poor region of the country which often experiences a shortage of medical supplies and personnel needed to care for the population. Among other items, the people of Quinindé are receiving on this container: 4 electric hospital beds, 12 mattresses, 44 walkers, a whirlpool bath for treating burn patients, Personal Energy Transport carts, exam gloves, iodine, surgical lights, anesthesia masks, and much more!
Thank you to the Patronato Municipal de Amparol Social del Cantón Quinindé for their help with this project!
