November, 2019 Update

Greetings from sunny, hot David, Panama. Container #24 was unloaded by a large group of volunteers. Since the unloading the wheelchairs have been cleaned and distributed by volunteers. All hospital supplies as well as most of the boxes of eyeglasses have been delivered. All adult pampers are gone. Most of the specialty wheelchairs have been delivered to the homes where they are needed. A new light bar, donated by the McCormack Foundation, for the roof of a Red Cross ambulance has been delivered and installed.

Tom has been busy in the prosthetic shop completing new leg number 1010 (since the inception of the prosthetic project). He will continue working in Panama through February 14th when he will return to “frigid” Pennsylvania.

Thank you all for your continued support of this project. It would not be possible without YOU.
