On July 28, 2011, MedShare’s Southeastern Regional Distribution Center shipped a 40-foot container of humanitarian aid destined for Beit CURE International Children’s Hospital in Blantyre, Malawi.
CURE International is a Christian NGO that “transforms the lives of children with disabilities and their families in the developing world through medical and spiritual healing, serving all by establishing specialty teaching hospitals, building partnerships, and advocating for these children.” MedShare has been partnering with CURE International for many years in shipping containers of aid to support their children’s hospitals.
On this particular container, over 1,300 individual pieces of medical supplies and equipment were loaded, including:
- ambu bags
- knee braces
- casting materials
- orthopedic instruments
- and much more!
