Another shipment arrives in Freetown

Shipped from the States, full of supplies for NHA to help the poor and needy, three more boxes arrived in Freetown.

James makes his way in the hot sun of Freetown to pick up the boxes from the post office.                  
Once the boxes are in his hands, he hurries to St. Laurence House to unload, sort and distribute the contents.
One thing that James can always count on is that Roo will be waiting, anxiously to see what is inside.  He knows that Mama Vicki always tucks away a little something for him in each shipment.
In this batch, there are lots of supplies for the area medical clinics, especially Kabala and the clinics in the outlying villages. 
Roo is happy to see the items for the hospitals, but you can see on his face that he is hoping to find something specifically for him!
NHA is so thankful for all the medications that have been arriving at our headquarters in the States, helping us to provide the necessary aid to the people of Sierra Leone. 
Roo continues to patiently, with smile on his face, wait for his surprise!
More boxes are opened...
and Roo digs and digs...searching for ....

and there it is!   A book about Simba the Lion. 

Along with all the medical supplies, we also shipped supplies for the Teachers at the Nazareth House Kabala School.  

Meanwhile, while Roo & James are opening this shipment in Freetown, another set of boxes is being prepared in the States.  

 Our NHA"package packers" are cramming each box full of supplies - for medical, educational and nutritional use.

Three boxes arrived in Freetown yesterday and three boxes filled with medications arrived at our NHA Louisville Headquarters yesterday.  

re-packed for International shipping ...
each item was systematically sealed with a kiss of love for our NHA brothers and sisters in Sierra Leone and ...
packed and sent on its way!   Thanks everyone, Love is everywhere in NHA!   God bless you all!
