Caring

Today we delivered various medical supplies to Mitchell’s Plain outpatient clinic which sees an estimated 45,000 patients per month. Mitchell’s Plain has outpatient services in mother newborn care, emergency medicine, and chronic disease management.

IMG_0857 It was here that we were able to deliver some of the hand-made “Mother Bears”.
