MedShare Sends Two More Containers to Ecuador

Northeastern Ecuador

MedShare’s Southeastern Regional Distribution Center loaded and shipped two more containers with medical humanitarian aid for the “El Oriente” region in the Amazon Basin of northeastern Ecuador.

Each container is carrying over 900 pieces of medical equipment and supplies that local doctors individually selected, hospital beds, stethoscopes, laryngoscopes, an anesthesia machine, surgical masks, drapes, gloves, and much more.  The materials will be distributed to small medical centers in the municipality of Pastaza and a charity hospital run by the Fundacion de Ayuda Social San Martin, where a large percentage of the population are indigenous Amazonian peoples of limited means.  The local clinics and hospitals struggle with a lack of supplies and equipment to care for their patients.

 

Special thanks to UPS and GEARBULK for donating the shipping!
