In recent weeks, Medical Missionaries has been able to provide medical supplies and equipment to the Mother of Mercy Free Medical Clinic as well as to individuals in the Greater Manassas area. We have also made additional deliveries of food to the Rock Lick Food Pantry in Grundy, VA. We received a letter from the Buchanan County Social Services Department thanking us for our deliveries and letting us know how much they are helping to meet the needs of that community.
We sent another container to the nation of Guinea-Bissau, located on the west coast of Africa. Guinea-Bissau is one of the world’s poorest and most fragile countries. The container contained clothing, medical supplies and equipment, and rice. We thank our volunteers who were able to help us load this container.
