MedShare Ships Container to the Bo Government Hospital in Sierra Leone

Bo, Sierra Leone

This morning, MedShare’s Southeastern Regional Distribution Center in Decatur, Georgia loaded and shipped a container of medical humanitarian aid for the Bo Government Hospital in Sierra Leone.  This shipment was generously sponsored by the Leon Sullivan Foundation.

The container is carrying over one thousand pieces of medical supplies and equipment which were individually selected by the medical staff at Bo Government Hospital, where resources are scarce and most patients are too poor to pay for services.  Some of the items include: a birthing bed, a ventilator, a sterilizer, a defibrillator, as well as hundreds of bandages, gloves, IV kits,  and other disposables.
