Updated July 4, 2013–We will be shipping the container this Fall, and need the supplies sent to the address below by the end of September. THANK YOU to all who have already given!
March 20, 2013–Kunai Health Centre is in need of more supplies! Last year we sent a container with medical supplies, and just over a year later, the supplies are used up. We’ve been contacted by several churches and individuals who desire to help us with this need. A missions support group from our home church has generously offered to help coordinate and ship for us, so we are extending this plea for supplies.
We do request that you limit what you might send to only those items on the following list. These are the items we need, and other items would not only be wasted, but would cost us extra in shipping and air freight.
Also–and we don’t want to be picky, but we must be honest–please do not send liquids. We can re-hydrate things here at our location in the bush. The liquids add to our air freight costs, as EVERYTHING has to be flown in. We don’t have access to a road at all.
Please contact us at email@example.com if you have any questions. Please ship all supplies to:
Bob and Stacy Norcross
907 W. Palmyra Lake
Palmyra, IN 47164
Thank you for being a blessing!
