I have been packing, repacking, taping, labeling and sorting boxes of donated items for a few months now in preparation to get this shipping container ready to go. Now, as we load everything up this week, I am astounded at everything that we have been blessed with! Some items were donated and other items bought with monetary donations for the clinic.
I can't even begin to name all the items or all the people that have generously given.....but here's a start! I can't say THANK YOU enough to local churches, friends, family, strangers whom I have never actually met, local hospitals and clinics, my workplaces, the Rotary club and those whom have been long time faithful supporters.
Luba Maternity Center will soon be stocked with shelving systems, supply cabinets, birth carts, filing cabinets, big metal desk, office supplies, newborn clothes/supplies and all necessary birthing equipment and instruments (which believe me is a lot of stuff)!!! I stand amazed at what has been provided and am excited to get things set up and moving forward!
This container will leave Iowa bound for Sierra Leone on July 14....just a week before my daughter and I head back home to SL! It is expected to arrive in Freetown, the capital of Sierra Leone around September 1.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for your generous and kind support!! We are one step closer to making Luba Maternity Center more than just a dream :)
