Sorting out the supplies & medical items...

Looking out the door of St. Laurence House, we found we were being greeted by a beautiful rainbow early one morning in Freetown.
Eager to get on with the distribution of supplies to the hospitals, clinics, and individuals, we gathered together to sort and pack the items. A few shoes missed the container and arrived directly to St. Laurence House.
Boxes filled with supplies shipped in via USPS or personally brought in our 4 suitcases, were dumped on the living room floor for sortment.
Ann Marie & Lucy always take charge of this chore.Vitamins for Kamasorrie Village, syringes & needles for Kroo Bay, medicines for individuals... it is all arranged.

Roo is fascinated with an Ear Syringe! Once the sorting is completed, its time to deliver!
