DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR MATCHING TO ZIMBABWE!
A donor has come forward and offered to match every dollar given to pay off the shipping cost of the container to Zimbabwe WITH ANOTHER DOLLAR.
The actual cost of shipping came to $17,500.00 dollars. MEMO only had $7000, but because of winter coming we went ahead and shipped trusting we could raise
the remainder before the year’s end.
This container allowed us to ship food for feeding 3000 AIDS orphans every day, medical supplies, school supplies, gardening tools, sewing machines and material, and much else. Large quantities of bed linens and incontinence products were included for caring for adults dying of aids at home.
A total of 25,000 lbs of life saving and life enhancing supplies were sent! Because MEMO has no paid employees every cent you give goes to accomplish your purpose in giving.
THIS IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO DOUBLE YOUR DONATION THIS CHRISTMAS AND YEAR END SEASON!
MEMO’s purpose has been to show the love of God to the Cuban and El Salvadoran people through the provision of redundant hospital equipment and supplies to needy health care facilities to Cuba and El Salvador. In the last 12 years MEMO has shipped over 70 containers to Cuba,El Salvador, Liberia, Nicaragua, Zimbabwe and Mexico, totalling millions of dollars in equipment and saving countless lives along the way.
Along with shipping equipment, medical personnel from across Canada have traveled to Cuba and El Salvador several times a year to teach and/or help orient health care providers to the new equipment.
In 2013, MEMO became involved in equipping a brand new community health clinic in El Salvador and has already sent a number of containers of medical equipment and supplies to the Shalom Clinic.
MEMO is pleased to state that there is no paid staff and is completely run by volunteers so that every dollar donated goes entirely to support the work.
