IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR…
Every August/September – my parents/my family load several crates of supplies to send to Haiti via boat! These are supplies that help us care for our programs in the Mole as well as our outreach within the community.
My sister died last July and in the midst of all the grieving… I forgot to put out a blog asking for help. This past year was VERY DIFFICULT for our campus as we ran out of much needed supplies.
It is our desire/goal to purchase our supplies in Haiti to help the local economy. However – there are some things that are hard to find or double in price. This yearly shipment helps us supplement those needed items.
If you are collecting supplies for us – Please have them to Kentucky by September 20th. (You can message me for the address if you don’t have it already).
This year the funding is VERY tight. I’m still not sure how we are going to pull it off…but believing God knows.
Or mail checks to:
7301 N Georgetown Rd
Indianapolis, IN 46268
**Please mark Mole Boat Supplies on a note.
If you have any questions about the supply list – please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like to help collect supplies….these things are always needed:
URGENT NEED: MEDICATION
**We are having a very difficult time finding much needed medications for our pharmacy. We are one of the only pharmacies within a 3-hour walk that has consistent stock. We’ve not had many teams the past 2 years – and usually they supplement our clinic with needed supplies.
Cough meds, vitamins, Tylenol, IB prophin, antacids, antibiotics, antifungal creams, antibiotic cream, hydrocortisone creams, laxatives, blood pressure meds, eye drops, allergy, nausea, pepto-bismo, burn cream, pain cream, dandruff shampoo which is good for fungal infections, etc
URGENT NEED: TOILETRIES
