By the end of 2022, twenty five donors had made the first leg of the project possible by donating $4,930.88 ... these funds transported the medical equipment and supplies from Oklahoma to Florida.
Prior to pickup, Eternal Life Clinic (in Oklahoma), willingly stored the equipment at a no charge until all the puzzle pieces fell into place.
Pam Cronk, a special friend we met in Germany years ago, provided contact information for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The bishop and several others provided the manpower, forklift, pallets, and packing supplies needed to prepare the load for shipment.
Within two hours following the arrival of Dr. Stephen Hansen’s trailer of medical supplies from Idaho to Oklahoma, the pickup date, the loading group, and a trucking driver miraculously fell into place.
Additional groups donated diapers, shoes, clothing, and more for the orphanage in need near the location we were headed in Haiti. These items filled the empty spaces between the medical equipment, or about one-fourth of the shipping container.
We were then told that the shipping container would remain in Florida until we fundraised the balance.
However, on December 31, 2022, the container unexpectedly arrived at the ports in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. It caught us off guard! What now?! Imagine our thoughts.
