Kabala Hospital Medicine & Supplies arrive

3 out of 4 boxes in last shipment have arrived at St. Laurence House in Freetown, Sierra Leone. In these photos above, James shows the contents which also included his Official Press Photographer vest. There are several toothpastes (thank you Jim & Glenda) to distribute as well as hospital supplies (from our doc & Eric & Aleica) that will go to Kabala as soon as possible. Our staff works hard to help those in need, everyday so I threw in some jiffy pop for the staff at St. Laurence House to enjoy and Fr. Haux sent some DVD movies. Maybe tonight they will have Popcorn and a movie!
