Last week, Ayuda Project Specialist, Susan Lora, was able to secure and package 12 boxes full to brim of comfort items, such as hygiene products, feminine products, toilet paper, diapers (adult and baby), slippers, water bottles, etc. Thank you to Triple B Forwarding to make sure this items are shipped to Ayuda partner in Pohnpei – Lien Alem en Pohnpei – a women’s group of Kolonia, Pohnpei. We always enjoy helping out our women’s groups – they are essential to the social uplifting in all communities.
This week Ayuda was able to donate 240 mosquito nets to the annual Christmas Drop. Every requests we get in from the outer islands we do our best to accumulate a proficient amount. Mosquito nets are useful especially for low income populations that are without shelter or have only partial shelter.
