This upcoming Monday at noon, a truck from Lima will deliver the first donation (Direct Relief International from Santa Barbara, California) for our 2014 Huancavelica Mission, to the small LIRCAY Hospital. All the needed and extenuating work to go through customs were completed by our sister institution PAMS FOR PERU, in Lima. Transportation to Lircay was donated by the Cia. Minas Buenaventura.
The total value of this generous gift amounts to $51,000. Part of the donation will be used to equip the new patient wing that is currently being built as we speak. We have already increased the absorption capacity from 16 to 26 beds. Even though this may be small step, it will provide seven hospital beds (with IV poles, mattresses, sterilizers, centrifuges, medicines and supplies) for that area in this upcoming August.
We will keep you posted on the progress. If you wish to donate, checks must be done to PAMSEF-Huiancavelica Mission.
Thanks to you all for your support.
