Fargo Division Ships Supplies to the Philippines

Fargo, ND

To help the new Indigenous People’s Hospital in Nueva Vizcaya, Philippines, prepare for opening on May 18, CHI’s Fargo Division shipped more than $120,000 worth of supplies and equipment that will be used to provide care to impoverished tribal people in a remote region of the country. With the help of a grant from the Mission and Ministry Fund that covered the cost of shipping, the Fargo Division’s International Mission Program partnered with MedShare, a medical equipment recovery and redistribution organization, to acquire needed supplies. In March, MedShare loaded 1,174 boxes of supplies and equipment into a 40-foot shipping container, which was loaded on a cargo ship bound for the Philippines. A short video about the project can be viewed on YouTube.
