Disabled Volunteers Pack Container for Orphans with Similar Handicaps

IMR shipped a container of much needed education and medical supplies to Wukro, Ethiopia in late 2009. “I am grateful to your great deed for the people, this is really very generous work in life, as you did this kind job” said Dr. Asmamaw Mirutse. Supplies, including clothes, bicycles and toys for the children, were packed by a group with disabilities at the HELP Warehouse. Jean Kaye Wilson commented on the importance of the volunteers at the warehouse having special needs as the orphanage that would receive the shipment also has many children with mental and physical handicaps “this is a special way for these volunteers to give back to those around the world who are in a similar situation as themselves”. A formal receiving ceremony will take place in Mekelle in early 2010.
