Medical Supplies for Hospitals in Haiti

by Volunteers for Interamerican Development Assistance
Feb 1, 2010

Twelve more pallets headed to Haiti

Just an update to let our supporters know that we have collected an additional 12 pallets of medical supplies this week - with more coming in daily. As the materials arrive they are sorted, documented and then arranged on wooden pallets so they can be shipped safely to the destination and distributed in an organized manner.

The medical supplies are collected from many partners in the Bay Area - hospitals and clinics that we have long standing relationships with.

Our work has a threefold purpose- disaster relief, general medical relief year long in Latin America and saving/diverting what would be medical waste from Bay Area landfills.

If you work in the medical industry and can benefit from our life saving work - please contact us!
