Our first shipment of medical supplies for 2017 recently arrived in Freetown, Sierra Leone.
Father Peter Konteh, Executive Director Caritas-Freetown and Sister Josephine Amara, the new Health Coordinator for Caritas-Freetown stand outside our Brookfields warehouse. They were on hand to coordinate the unloading and storing of the medicines.
Supplies were provided to HealeyIRF as a result of our partnership with MAP International. The donated value of the shipment is approximately $2.6 million. This shipment includes pain medications, antibiotics and vitamins for pregnant women. These medical supplies are used throughout the Charity Health Network. The network consisting of four hospitals, nine clinics, and a Mobile Health Unit provides life saving care throughout Sierra Leone.
Medical Supplies Welcomed by new Health Coordinator
Sister Amara remarked, “I am new to the Caritas-Healey Team but very excited to begin my new responsibilities. This shipment of needed medical supplies is invaluable as we care and tend to those needing health treatments. I can hardly wait for the next shipment!”
That next shipment is coming soon Sister Amara!
There is nothing on this earth more to be prized than true friendship.
