Cuenca 2015 Home
Welcome once again to TNMS Team Cuenca's Blog. We are ready to go!
Packed - 33 hockey bags and 19 instrument totes: total approximate weight 2500 lbs!!
As one of our team members commented - we arrive like this & within hours out pops a hospital...as we take all of our own instruments, medical surgical supplies , clinic & ward supplies.
Contents of all the hockey bags and totes, everything brought from Canada, including shelving units which are assembled on location
Our first group of 10 volunteers will leave on Wednesday, Feb. 25 and arrive in Cuenca a day ahead of the majority of the team. This allows the opportunity to meet with hospital officials and make sure all is set for the rest of the team. Preparations are made for a clinic to see as many patients as possible. The remaining 27 volunteers are leaving Thursday at 8:35 am to arrive in Quito near midnight, sleep the night and complete the journey to Cuenca early Friday morning. All will be ready to go by the end of the day on Friday.
