SURPLUS MEDICAL EQUIPMENT TO THE ISLAND MISSIONS


AN AMAZING RESOURCE
RIGHT HERE IN LOUISVILLE

A GREAT VISIT - NEW POSSIBILITIES

Recently, I had the great opportunity to take my second tour of a facility right here in Louisville that rescues surplus medical supplies to send to countries of great need.

This time, I took two retired seminary classmates who have expressed interest in getting involved in my program for retired, priests, bishops and professional lay persons - CATHOLIC SECOND WIND GUILD. The tour was given by another friend from my Cathedral days who is a staff member at SUPPLIES OVER SEAS.

I am looking to assemble a 40 foot shipping container to send down to St. Vincent and the Grenadines in support of the local hospital, nursing home, girls home, two orphanages and mental institution.








Behold! They have a St. Vincent and the Grenadines flag - the green, yellow and blue one!

Paul Bluel, a great detail man,  has shown interest in being my contact person for this project, overseeing it from inception to completion.

We will be looking for help to sponsor the @$18,000 it will take to ship @$325,000 worth of free surplus medical equipment down to the islands. Those who are interested in helping can contact me.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING
Just a few shots of the huge warehouse where surplus medical equipment is sorted and prepared for shipment by an army volunteers. They handle almost everything from rubber gloves to heart monitors, surgical instruments to hospital beds, blood pressure cuffs to wheel chairs. 

All electronic medical equipment is repaired and tested, if necessary, and put in good working condition before it is sent out. Often enough, it is just a previous model in perfect working condition that has been replaced with a newer model.

It all comes from the many hospitals and health care facilities in this region of the country.


Without this organization, most of this equipment would be dumped into a landfill.
