As you may know already know, a group of board members is headed to Ethiopia on December 11. I have been collecting donations for a medication purchase just prior to our trip. The pediatricians at Le Toukoul in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia have supplied me with a “need list” including antibiotics, antifungals, and other over the counter medications. I have found a supplier that is selling these medications to EOR at cost. These prices are rock bottom, so a little cash goes a long way.
EXAMPLE $70 for 25 1 gram Vials of Rocephin!!!!!!!
THANK YOU to the following groups/individuals that have supported this Medication Drive thus far.
1- Evangelical Lutheran Church of Mankato, Kansas (Specifically WELCA)
2- Brenda and Kent Enyeart
3- Harold and Elaine Lippold
4- Bill and Verla Roe
5- The Vancouver Clinic staff and providers
We are planning on visiting/volunteering at several clinics and I am thrilled to be hand delivering these medications to the amazing physicians that are caring for the orphans. They often work with limited resources and these medications will help them do their jobs. We really are making a difference.
If anyone else is interested in contributing to this Medication Drive please contact me via e-mail. I am planning on making the final purchase of medications just after Thanksgiving.
