Joint Effort on Medical Aid Package

By Chevalier Guye Pennington, GCLR

On July 30th, a medical supply package (valued at approximately $14,000 U.S.) was prepared by a partnership of the Association and the Royal Confraternity of Saint Teotonio (under the patronage of H.R.H. Dom Miguel de Bragança, Duke of Viseu). This package, which consists of 25 electrocautery devices for surgery, an epidural anesthesia tray, three dual lumen central line catheters, 8 Hickman introducers, 35 vacutainers for blood draws, 36 IV peripheral line catheters with introducer needle (starter kit), eight low-temp disposable cautery devices for emergency room/clinic use, two surgical needle drivers for suturing, two large tissue forceps for suturing, 19 packages of suture (all grades), 25 surgical grade electrocautery devices for operating room use (boxed separately), three surgical staplers, three endocath introducers for laparoscopy, a roto-auto suture device, and eight large boxes of suture material including one box of gore-tex suture, has been donated by the Association and Royal Confraternity to assist the needs of the people of the Republic of Sao Tome y Principe. An additional shipment of humanitarian materials from this partnership will also be sent in the next few months, and we will report more at that time.
To this end, the Association is exceedingly grateful of the efforts of Chevalier Dr. Andrew J. Schoenfeld, GCLR, FICS, MD for his contributions and work in this endeavor.
