Emory University Donated Beds Sent to Ecuador

Ecuador

On April 29, a 40-foot ocean container carrying 50 donated hospital beds and mattresses was shipped from MedShare’s Southeastern Regional Distribution Center.  The donations are on their way to Ibarra, a city in northern Ecuador.  The local municipality of Gonzalo Pizarro will be installing the beds in several rural health centers that have been affected by recent heavy seasonal rains, which have washed out roads and caused multiple injuries in the local populations.  These hospital beds are most urgently needed there!

Donated Hospital Beds

MedShare sends deep gratitude to the Atlanta-based Emory University  Hospital and Emory Midtown Hospital for this generous donation which will benefit so many needy Ecuadorian families.
