Shipping Oxygen from Denver, CO to Freetown, Sierra Leone
AIR for AFRICA
Last year as we approached Easter, 31:20 worked to fill and ship giant barrels across the Atlantic Ocean to Sierra Leone, Africa. The barrels were sent through LEAD Global, and distributed through local pastors to congregations and people in need. This year, we will not be sending barrels; a new, urgent need has been brought to our attention.
There is a desperate situation with regards to oxygen in the government hospitals in Sierra Leone. People are dying daily due to lack of oxygen, especially kids and women. Amazingly, LEAD Global has partnered with Project Cure and Apria to ship a 40ft container filled with 200-300 oxygen generators for all the hospitals. This is $200,000-$300,000 worth of equipment! The cost of getting this huge container filled with life-saving medical equipment is $20,000. The goal is to raise enough money to ship the container by Mid-May.
