Last week for 4 days volunteers from PMSNEF, Inc,PMSNEF, Inc Auxiliary, Visayas Mindanao Association, Ilocano Association, Palm Coast Group and several other good hearted individuals came and spend their weekends helping load hospital beds, dialysis machines, surgical equipments, and medical supplies.With one truck and 2 trailers, we were able fill up 3 (40ft) container vans up to the brim.
Three of the hired workers gave up on us on Sunday evening and thanks to the children of Drs. Patrick and Grace Bunyi for stepping into the plate. Kyle, Roman, Marie and their friend Ashley stayed with us up to late Sunday night and completed the work with a smile.
Thanks to Chris Ordonez who has always been with us since we started our Medical Mission in 2005. She drove a limping 26 ft Penske truck with a lift. The truck was so lame that it can only run up to 25 miles/hr on I-10, 295 and 95 highways transporting the goods from the Westside farm of Roman Paje where we stored them for free to the parking lot of Patrick. The truck barely made it out at the backyard of Patrick. She complained to Penske with her South Georgia Farm lady manners and got a break. Instead of paying over $600 for the 4 day rent we paid $215.94.
The rainbow over the 3 container vans on the last afternoon made all our efforts worthwhile.
