Tuesday Thanks: A Letter from Mully Children’s Family’s Founder & CEO

Mully Children's Family

On August 12, we shipped a container of almost 20,000 lbs of medical supplies and equipment to Mully Children’s Family in Kenya. The non-profit Christian organization 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.

We received the following words from Dr. Mulli, Founder and CEO of Mully Children’s Family, yesterday, and we wanted to share them with our supporters.

Dear Friends,

How honored and humbled I am to witness what the Lord is dong through each one of you. As I read your email, I was overcome with excitement at the thought of having our clinic improve its ability to care for the over 2,100 children in MCF as well as hundreds of staff and thousands of needy community members. Thank you for being part of this change that will help us save lives.

On behalf of the entire MCF fraternity, please accept our sincere thanks for what each of you has contributed to make this happen. It is my hope that one day we will welcome you to MCF so that you may witness first hand how your efforts are impacting lives.

Wishing you blessings.

Yours sincerely,
Dr.Ev.C.M.MULLI
FOUNDER & CEO

Thanks again to two of our incredible sponsors, US-based healthcare supply chain corporation MedAssets and UPS, for covering the cost of this container and its shipping.

Container Shipment Announcement: Two Containers to Haiti

Haiti

MedShare is proud to announce the shipment of two 40 foot containers of medical humanitarian aid for the victims of the 2010 earthquake in Haiti.  The first shipped on Monday, February 14, 2011, out of MedShare’s Western Regional Distribution Center in San Leandro, California.  That container is carrying over 1,000 lbs of supplies and equipment such as a baby incubator, a sterilizer, pediatric ambu bags, and bandages for a maternal/child health center in Thomonde, operated by the NGO Project Medishare.  This is MedShare’s second container shipment to this hospital, which our CEO and co-founder AB Short visited in 2009 and made a commitment to help.  Click Here for a description of the great work that Project Medishare is doing for the impoverished mothers and babies in Haiti’s Central Plateau. Special thanks to UPS and the AidMatrix Foundation for providing the discounted shipping rate through their humanitarian logistics program!

The second container that shipped for Haiti this week left from MedShare’s Southeastern Regional Distribution Center in Decatur, Georgia this morning, February 17th, 2011.  This container is carrying over 1,100 individual boxes of medical supplies including ambu bags, pediatric endotracheal tubes,  gloves, gowns, surgical masks, and a “Bair Hugger” patient blanket warming system, among other materials.  These supplies will be used by our partner NGO Zanmi Lasante (known in the US as Partners in Health) the new Mirebalais Teaching Hospital and several Cholera Treatment Centers.  Special thanks to Angie Bryan and Nicole DeMoss for their collaboration on making that project happen!
