Help for Haiti #20: St. Nicholas Hospital

This little boy in Haiti plays with surgical glove outside hospital grounds.

On Tuesday, May 25, 2010, MedShare’s Southeastern Region sent out MedShare’s 20th shipment of medical product donations for HAITI since the earthquake occurred in January. This container of medical supplies and equipment is for Saint Nicholas Hospital in Saint Marc, Haiti, a coastal town north of Port-au-Prince.

Saint Nicholas Hospital is a 300-bed facility that was hit hard by the devastating earthquake and has been struggling with insufficient supplies and equipment to care for the thousands of injured patients that come through their doors. The MedShare container is carrying over one thousand individual donations, including ECG machines, vital signs monitors, laptop computers, an ultrasound machine, beds, bandages, blankets, walkers, crutches, gloves, and much more. We hope these supplies and equipment will help the dedicated staff at Saint Nicholas Hospital a great deal as they care for the sick and needy people of Haiti.

Special thanks to our partner NGO Partners In Health for generously shipping this container for us and coordinating the delivery to Saint Marc!
