On July 20, 2014 the Wisconsin Medical Project donated a truckload of medical equipment and supplies to Guinea in West Africa. This included exam tables and lights, crutches, walkers, and wheelchairs, as well as over 140 cartons of disposable medical supplies such as bandages and gloves.
This donation is part of a larger effort by Guinean doctors who work here in the United States to support their home country, where there was the recent outbreak of Ebola virus.
This shipment was taken to Iowa City, Iowa where it will be combined with other donations and sent by ocean-going container at the expense of the U.S. based Guinea group.
