We sent our 15th container of medical supplies from Maine to Haiti this summer. This container included over $400,000 worth of medicines,1,000+ birthing kits, an anesthesia machine, infant incubators, and hundreds of boxes of biomedical equipment and hospital supplies.
We are collecting supplies locally to prepare for sending a container of medical supplies in 2014. Our past funding to assist in paying for containers has disappeared. This is why this campaign is so important- if we can raise the money to send a container, hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of equipment, supplies and medicines reach Haiti that otherwise cannot. These supplies go directly to the Justinien University Hospital in Cap- Haitien, the second largest public hospital in Haiti.
We are about to send a shipping container June 28!
By Danny Muller - Logistics Coordinator
We have scheduled a shipping container to leave Portland Maine, Friday, June 28th. It will be our highest valued container, well over $500,000 worth of medicines, biomedical equipment and 1100 birthing kits. Konbit Sante has decided to spend their own funds to send this container, as these supplies are urgently needed, so we thank any one who has supported or iis intered in this project. This is our 15th shipping container and we have sent dozens of other shipments by air and sea. We will continue to have our supply chain management initiative at the JUH and we will look for future support and volunteers.
You can contact us for more information about the status of the shipment at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (207) 347- 6733.
