“Never doubt that a small group of committed people can change the world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.” ~Margaret Mead
Special Thank You to the Clarian Arnett Health group in Lafayette, Indiana. This group provided our first donation of disposable medical supplies in April of 2008. This donation has propelled our project. So far, these supplies have made it to the Dominican Republic, Peruvian Jungle, Africa, Bangladesh, Mexico, and now Haiti. Simply stated: The supplies are donated to us and we facilitate getting them into the hands of those who can use them. They are free to missionaries and non-profit organizations.
