Mission team packs medicines for the Dominican Republic


More than fifty members of the diocesan Commission on World Mission, St. Paul's in Foley, and a few others recently spent their Mardi Gras Saturday morning in the St. Paul's parish hall sorting medication and counting pills in preparation for the medical mission trip to the Dominican Republic which will take place March 5-12. Tens of thousands of dollars worth of donated medications from Blessings International were broken down from bags of

thousands, to monthly prescription sizes. While many of the pills were preventive, like adult and prenatal vitamins, many maintenance drugs were also donated. Clients can receive blood pressure medication, baby aspirin, acetaminophen, allergy medications, insulin, antibiotics, and anti-nausea medications. Each medical mission team member will take a suitcase with fifty pounds of vital medications as well as dental hygiene products and band aids that will be left behind to support the ongoing work of the Episcopal Diocese of the Dominican Republic. For more information, or to donate to this important work, please contact the chair of the Commission on World Mission, Florence Crawford at florencecrawford@att.net
