On March 3, a 40-foot shipping container filled with 11 tons of medical equipment was shipped Bule Hora General Hospital in southern Ethiopia.  This equipment will greatly contribute to improving their burn care.

The shipment was made in collaboration with the Norwegian Children’s Burn and Wound Care Foundation and with Salvation Army Aid in Västerås, Sweden, who have collected all the equipment from hospitals in Sweden. Many of you have helped to finance this shipment, through your donations to the Swedish Burn Care Foundation. Without your support, there would have been no shipment, so a big THANK YOU to everyone who made this possible!We will continuously update the site so that you can follow the container on its long journey from Sweden to Ethiopia.
