On Friday, December 17th, a 40 foot container of medical humanitarian aid for Guayaquil, Ecuador was shipped out of MedShare’s Southeastern Regional Distribution Center in Decatur, Georgia. This project was generously sponsored by MedShare’s close partner, the Kimberly Clark Corporation and the Foundation, through a multi-year multi-container grant.
The container is carrying over 14,000 lbs of medical supplies and equipment such as a birthing bed, an ultrasound machine, an oxygen concentrator, bandages, ambu bags, exam gloves, splints, nebulizers, and much more! All of the materials will be donated to the hospitals, clinics, and health centers run by the municipal government of Guayaquil.
Special thanks to everyone at Kimberly Clark for sponsoring this humanitarian aid shipment!
