This week on Tuesday November 19, volunteers, staff, and guests gathered at MedShare’s Western Region to send off a container of medical supplies to Shirati KMT Hospital in Tanzania. This was a very special occasion for MedShare’s Western Region volunteers who not only sorted and boxed the supplies going on the container but also raised the $22,000 sponsorship fee for the container. Every container that MedShare ships must have a financial sponsor to cover the costs associated with preparing and shipping the container, so that it can be shipped free of charge to the recipient hospital. These volunteers worked hard over the summer to raise the funds. They organized a silent auction, arranged a 5K walk, and donated their many talents to make this fundraiser a success.
We are very grateful to the thousands of volunteers who give their time to MedShare every year, and we are especially proud of the remarkable effort made by these volunteers.
Thank you! We wish the container a safe and speedy journey to Tanzania!
