Many of our families and staff members have connections to the people in Haiti — either through mission trip experiences, social outreach programs or adoption agencies. We have been asked to seek donations for a medical team that will be leaving with supplies next week.
If at all possible, we would like to ask anyone that is able to bring ANY OF THE ITEMS LISTED BELOW for donation to this medical mission. Dr. Tenhaff, a local doctor with the Georgetown Medical Center, will be participating in this trip and is one of the doctors seeking much needed supplies.
- Medical Supplies: antibiotic ointments, gauze, bandaging of any kind, any unused antibiotics (pills) they can use, tylenol, ibuprofen (adults and children)
- Miscellaneous supplies: sheets, blankets, hand sanitizer, soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, diapers, formula
- Non Perishable: beans and rice (this is the basic staple of the people)
For those who would prefer to donate money, please make checks out to BYRON CENTER BIBLE CHURCH HAITI MISSION. Checks should be placed in an envelope marked: HAITI MISSION and sent to the office. We will make sure that these checks are included with the donated items. (Dr. Tenhaff attends this church and works directly with the medical clinic in Haiti.)
Thank you for any help you can provide. If you are interested in following the best site for up to date information about the desperate situation in Haiti, visit the New York Times Lede Blog.
