On April 15th, 50 beds were loaded in Burlington, Ontario, home of the Crossroads Communications warehouse. Another 100 beds are awaiting transport as soon as KBNF has the shipping funds. These beds were donated by Princess Margaret Cancer Centre and Toronto General Hospital.
Canadians across the land have risen to the charge of supporting Liberia in their grave time of need. Dell Wergeland, President of Compassionate Resource Warehouse, worked with David Shelley’s warehouse volunteers, men that have left their busy farms for a few precious hours, to get these 400 pound beds loaded.
Donations received and shipped from Ontario is a first for KBNF. Avi D’Souza of Not Just Tourists – Toronto Chapter took this desperate need to heart and took action. Receiving the support of the University Health Network meant quality donations will be in full use for many many years to come, in the heart of Africa.
And much appreciation goes to 100 Huntley St. for their generous support in housing these beds and providing the volunteers, several farmers that left their chores during their busy farming season to manually load these beds. THAT is a miracle!
