SOUTHFIELD, MICHIGAN, UNITED STATES, January 13, 2022 / -- Many countries around the world lack proper healthcare essentials, and the COVID-19 pandemic only worsened those situations. To help fill this shortage, Life for Relief and Development (LIFE) sent a total of 21 shipments to eight different countries around the world, totaling nearly $10 million over the course of 2021. Countries such as Somalia, Somaliland, Lebanon, Mali, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Pakistan and Ghana all benefited from these shipments. Medical supplies included a variety of items, depending on the need, such as PPE, respiratory supplies, surgical equipment, wheelchairs, walkers, crutches, oxygen concentrators and much more. Ambulances were also donated to Lebanon and Bangladesh in order to improve transportation to healthcare facilities.

“The helping hand you extended and your generous medical supplies and medical equipment donation were well received and will go towards our general hospital to continue serving our community. Thank you once again for your kind and generous support and we look forward to maintaining a liaison with you,” said Sister Nicolas Akiki, Director of Hospital Wardieh - Rosary Sisters Hospital in Lebanon.

LIFE is continuously making efforts to provide medical supplies to countries that need it most, and in times like these, many countries are in dire need of aid.

After all, where there is LIFE, there is hope,” said Dr. Hany Saqr, CEO of LIFE.
