CONTAINER TO ZIMBABWE PAID FOR!
There is good news to report regarding the MEMO matching grant fundraising drive for shipping a container to needy Zimbabwe.
MEMO SUPPORTERS DONATED MORE THAN ENOUGH MONEY TO PAY FOR SHIPPING THE CONTAINER TO ZIMBABWE IN NOVEMBER!
We thank you for your donation and thank God for moving in people’s hearts to give.
If you follow international news you will know that Zimbabwe is having a terrible time with food shortages, 250% inflation, and military crackdowns on demonstrations.
Meanwhile, the 3000 AIDS orphans being supported by EFCCM’s Susan Janetti through her Zimbabwe Gecko Society have to be daily fed, educated, cared for medically and taught life skills so they can support themselves as adults.
Knowing that the living Jesus loves them, gives them hope to keep going in spite of the country’s deteriorating conditions. This container was filled with everything from food, school supplies, medical supplies, gardening and carpentry hand tools, sewing machines and supplies, and much more.
MEMO thanks those of you who made this possible.
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.
