We are in desparate need of portable kichens. We are contacting Samaritan's Purse, World Vision, and the International Mission Board for the kitchen and other supplies.
We will be headed to PAP to select sites to set up clinics there. We will need physicians, nurses, and supplies for that. We will let you know specifics.
For any orthopedic surgeons, we need for them to bring an anaesthesiologist, nurse, and scrub tech.
That's it for now. Thank you for any help you give.
