This morning, staff and volunteers from MedShare’s Southeastern Regional Distribution Center in Decatur, GA gathered together to celebrate the send-off of a 40-foot container of medical humanitarian aid shipment for Kenya. This project was generously sponsored by the US-based healthcare supply chain corporation MedAssets, and UPS provided shipping of the container from MedShare’s dock all the way to the beneficiary’s door in Nairobi.
The beneficiary is the Mully Children’s Family, a non-profit Christian organization that cares for hundreds of homeless Kenyan children and also hosts monthly medical mission teams of doctors and nurses who need better supplies and equipment for their important humanitarian work.
The container shipped today is carrying almost 20,000 lbs of medical supplies and equipment, including :
- an ultrasound machine
- brand-new operating lights
- gauze pads
- and much more!
