IMG_20150310_092058“Hi Von, attached are two photos we just received from our partners in Honduras, Fundación Ruth Paz, which is a children’s charity that runs a hospital, a clinic, and other health related projects in San Pedro Sula. These children and their parents are so happy with their child PET’s that they received from the container shipped by MedShare in January from our San Leandro, CA facility! Can you please share these materials with your affiliates, especially those who donate PETs to MedShare’s Western Regional Distribution Center? Thanks! Amanda Paniagua”

“Dear Team!! The Pets arrived and we were able to clear the port on
Friday April 10. The truck arrived in Bohicon and Abomey on Saturday
evening April 11. Thanks a million. This has been the best clearing to
date. No worries but I went a head since Thursday to be there when the
truck arrived. At First we were promised to have it out on Thursday. We
counted 160 cartons. We will start to distribute in two weeks. We have
stored 100 at the City Hall in Bohicon and 60 in Abomey. I did not have
email access while I was in Abomey so that I could notify you earlier.
More pictures when they get assembled. God bless you and thank you. Have
a great week. Daslin”

productivity. Continue reading

data. Continue reading
