MORE:

Typically donations to SOS are surplus or expired. Regulations may prevent them from being used here, but they are still useful elsewhere in the world. The majority of the medical supplies and equipment in this shipment will go to a hospital that is being built in Mango, Togo—a small city in the far north of the country. Currently people living in the area have to travel eight hours by car in order to access medical care. This new hospital will serve approximately 20,000 patients per year, and provide health and hope to people living in northern Togo, the Republic of Benin, and Ghana, as well as the people of southern Burkina Faso.
