Good News Project Sends Health Equipment to Ukraine
for the wausau times
Wausau–Good News Project (GNP), whose mission is fulfilling needs at home and abroad through meaningful service opportunities, will be sending 14 gaylords of excess duplicate medical equipment to Ukraine. These gaylords will be picked up from Good News Project’s warehouse on Wednesday, August 3, between 11:00 am and noon.
Partnering with Chalice of Mercy, a central Wisconsin nonprofit, the medical supplies will be shipping directly to a military hospital in Ukraine. It is expected the medical supplies will arrive within two weeks. These supplies are then distributed through the country supporting the medical needs in rural Ukraine.
“Good News Project is grateful that we have medical supplies to send overseas to help those with the greatest needs. These supplies have been donated through out the year and we are so thankful that we are able to be the conduit for those that have medical supplies that are no longer in use and those that need it” said Christine Daniels, Executive Director of Good News Project.
Health Equipment Lending Program (HELP) is a Good News Project program that provides people with medical supplies that are no longer being used and make them available to those that need them. Through this program, the community is able to keep these medical items from going to the landfill and recycling them for use. Good News Project then sanitized and checks them for safety before loaning them out to people with medical needs.
