More Medical Aid for Chile

Medical supplies heading to Chile for earthquake relief.

MedShare’s THIRD shipment of medical humanitarian relief aid for CHILE left from the MedShare Southeastern Regional Distribution Center this morning, April 19, 2010.  The supplies on the container number over 1,300 boxes and weigh a total of 12,700 lbs!  They are shipping to Hospital Clínico Regional “Guillermo Grant Benavente” in Concepción, Chile, where the medical staff have been struggling to care for thousands of injured earthquake victims that have flooded through their doors since the disaster occurred in February.  The medical supplies and equipment being donated on this container include ambu bags, IV kits, gloves, endotrachael tubes, urinary catheters, laboratory equipment, stethoscopes, nebulizers, and more items that the hospital needs.  Special thanks go out to Gearbulk for generously providing donated shipping services for this project, and to the honorable Ambassador to Chile for connecting MedShare with this hospital!
