The MedShare team is proud to announce the humanitarian aid shipment of THREE 40 foot containers for Lautech Teaching Hospital in Oyo State, Nigeria! Each container is carrying 50 hospital beds and 50 mattresses which were loaded at MedShare’s Southeastern Regional Distribution Center. Two containers shipped out yesterday, December 1st, and the third shipped out this afternoon, December 2nd.
The beds are due to arrive in Nigeria in late December and will undoubtedly be of great help to the patients and staff at the hospital. Lautech Teaching Hospital is a newly-built government hospital that will cater to the poor and underserved populations of Oyo State. It is part of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology and the Lautech College of Health Sciences. Once these first three containers are received in Nigeria, a fourth container of 50 additional beds, mattresses, and 200 electrical transformers for this beneficiary will ship.
Our deep thanks to all who contributed in making this project a reality, with special recognition for the Catholic Medical Mission Board for procuring the bed donations and the hardwork of our dedicated warehouse staff for their extra effort!
