Supplies Needed for Haiti

June 21, 2017

June 17, 2017

Here in Haiti, we have been meeting with JUH staff from the pediatric service to help plan the “big move” into their new facility, now slated for some time in August.  We have worked with them to develop a comprehensive list of all that they will need in terms of equipment and furniture to adequately equip their beautiful new space for the newborns, babies, and children in their care, and for the staff that will care for them. 

We plan to send our next 18th shipping container  to arrive in Cap- Haitien in late August, soon after the building has been turned over to the hospital, so that these materials can be unloaded directly into the new space.  There are many things needed in addition to life-saving biomedical equipment; there are more exam rooms and offices to furnish, a storage depot that needs shelving, and additional space for hospital cribs and beds.  

In addition to the things that readily come to mind, there are things that one might not think about as priorities or as being needed, but are. For instance, they will have offices for the first time, so we need office furniture and over  100 stackable chairs for waiting areas and family seating.  

A list of items we need is below.  We are looking for:

  • Supporters who have items on the below list to share with us.
  • Volunteers to help with our Summer container ( our warehouse is in Westbrook, Maine).
  • Donors to help procure items for pediatrics.

If you have any questions, please contact us.

Sincerely,

Request for  Donations:
