News for Today..

Two patients arrived from the Comfort ship today.  The first girl had a metal plate inserted into her left femur.

The second patient is boy with a tibia fracture.  He will need his cast removed in 8 weeks.

A couple of extra needs to add to the list

  • cast removing saw
  • kerlex or cling
  • triple antibotic ointment
  • tegaderm

Also some new locations  that are accepting supplies for RHFH

We also have a woman in Iowa who is willing to pick up items from western Iowa and possibly meet people from the Omaha, Nebraska area.  Those people can contact Tiel Stanton Howard at tiellucille@peoplepc.com or call her at (319) 854-7577.

    So everything still needs to go to MN?

      Claire,

      If you are located in the southern United States and it is easier/less expensive for you to drop off or ship to Slidell, Louisiana then you can ship it there. Contact nursesinhaiti@aol.com

      Many people who had gone through Hurricane Katrina wanted to help and were willing to collect and organize supplies in Louisiana.

      I hope this helps.

  2. May the Lord continue to supply all your needs each day in the name of Jesus. May you want for nothing as He works his mighty miracles through you. May you rise up each day refreshed with spiritual food, and may you lie down at night for a sound sleep, knowing that your times are in the hands of the almighty God Himself. We pray this in Jesus’s holy name, out here in California.

    What about cast-cutting shears? Eddie can get that – also, what sizes of tegaderm do you need? How much kerlix? SHall we send these for the container, or with Casey, or via Agape?

    You’re doing a great job!

    As mentioned above, I can collect things in the Iowa area – so if you are in the Des Moines/ Cedar Rapids / Iowa City and surrounding areas I can collect in those areas too. Please don’t hesitate to contact me.
