Shipments of Aid and Hope
|Loading a Sea Container, Manassas, VA
Each year, Medical Missionaries sends vast quantities
of medicine, medical supplies, medical equipment, food, and other supplies to improve the healthcare of the poor throughout
the world. Some of these sea containers support the work of partner organizations in many countries.
In 2013, we sent over 1,000 packages of medicines to medical teams serving throughout
the world, several sea containers to Africa and to Haiti/Dominican Republic, disaster relief supplies to the victims of the
typhoon in the Philippines, over 25 supply trips to Appalachia and Oklahoma, and distribution locally of clothes, supplies
and equipment.In October 2013 Medical Missionaries reached the milestone of shipping its 150th sea container of
supplies and aid overseas!

Supplies for Haiti/Dominican
(October – December 2013)
In December, the sea containers that were shipped in October
arrived in the Dominican Republic. The first carried medical supplies and construction materials; the second was packed with
food supplied by Feed My Starving Children for our school lunch program, to be distributed to schools in Thomassique, Haiti.
Aid to Typhoon Victims in the Philippines
Working in conjunction with a partner organization,
Medical Missionaries prepared a shipment of medical supplies to go to Divine Word Hospital in Tacloban, Leyte, which was one
of the few hospitals that was functioning for some time in the whole region. This photo shows some of the destruction in that
Sea Container sent overseas by Medical Missionaries!
In October, when Medical Missionaries
volunteers loaded a sea container of medical equipment and supplies to be shipped overseas, it had a special significance:
it was the 150th sea container that Medical Missionaries has sent to over 35 countries around the world in the past 12 years.
That adds up to over 3,000 tons of medical equipment and supplies, food, and household goods for the poorest of the poor!
We thank everyone for their support that has made this possible.
Shipment of Medications to Partner Groups
more boxes of medications were sent to our partner groups to help supply the clinics they support throughout the world, mostly

container of supplies that had been sent a few months earlier arrived in the Ivory Coast, we received a thank you from Act

of the city of Koumassi not only meet their daily sanitary needs, but also equip their general hospital...and also reequipped
5 other medical centers throughout the city. Your donation made a big difference in the lives of so many people in the community
and we are so grateful. Please find attached some photos taken during the ceremony at the hospital."
