Lesotho Receives Container from MedShare with help of UPS and Aidmatrix Network

Congatulations to Medshare on their recent shipment to Lesotho. Aidmatrix is proud to partner with Medshare on such efforts as part of the Aidmatrix International Transportation Portal.

On Wednesday, November 17, 2010, a 40-foot container of medical humanitarian aid for Lesotho was loaded and shipped out of Medshare’s Western Regional Distribution Center. Through the Aidmatrix Network, a foundation that connects donors and relief organizations, UPS generously provided in-kind shipping of the container from California to the South African port. Lesotho is a tiny country in Southern Africa that actually has the 3rd highest HIV/AIDs rate in the world. The majority of the 2 million people living in Lesotho live in conditions of extreme poverty, and the rural hospitals and clinics lack basic medical supplies to care for patients.
