Surgical Instruments donated

01/10/2011

 Andy Perry of Soroptimist St. Helens has used all her friends, contacts and family to mastermind a massive donation of surgical instruments and other surgical supplies to the Operating Theatre we built at Lubwe Mission Hospital.

Sister Rosemary had asked for surgical clamps as they were much too expensive to buy in Zambia but she got more than she bargained for from generous donations by manufacturers and UK hospital suppliers.

Two large cases were sent by air to Lusaka Airport and another 7 pallets of surgical dressings are on their way by sea.

The shippers have very generously agreed to reduce the shipping costs by 50% as their contribution, as well as repacking the pallets to achieve a reduced volume. Thank you so much to Andy and all who have done so much to help her make this possible. Dreams do come true!
