No doubt you’ve seen the news about Ebola. There’s a growing health crisis in West Africa.
According to The New York Times, more than 1,200 deaths have been reported due to the Ebola outbreak. There is no cure. Our brothers and sisters in Africa are hurting, desperate and hopeless.
But today, because of the tremendous love, compassion, generosity and support of so many individuals, we are able send supplies to the rescue. International Aid is responding to the Ebola crisis.
As I write this blog, we are preparing to ship a 40-foot container of personal protection equipment and urgently needed medical supplies to a hard-hit hospital in Sierra Leone.
Included within in this container are 40-plus pallets of life-saving equipment and supplies…
- Patient gowns, bandages, IV tubing, masks, gloves, isolation gowns, towels, blood pressure cuffs, diapers and other severely lacking medical supplies — currently in high demand.
- We are also supplying four self-contained field scrub sinks for hand washing, four portable exam tables, new hospital beds and electronic thermometers.
Lack of sanitation, education and financial resources are the three main things limiting the response of medical facilities throughout the region. By God’s grace — we are rushing to help.
At International Aid we are committed to serving in the name of Christ … and meeting needs around the world, and this case is no different.
Although this container will be shipped specifically to our partners serving the sick in Sierra Leone, the need doesn’t end there… we also are continuing to respond with much-needed medical equipment and health products in Liberia, Haiti, Honduras, Eritrea, the Philippines, and many other places around the world. Places where physical and spiritual healing are continuing to change lives!
God bless you for praying for International Aid, for your generosity — as well as your tremendous partnership with us.
Together we are doing amazing things to reach the world for Christ!
Thank You and God Bless You!
