The Nekemte Hospital in Sasiga, Ethiopia, faces critical challenges; they need more and better equipment. As the main medical facility for an area that is home to over 2 million people, it is essential their surgical units and maternity wards be enabled.

This container is being filled with items like maternity beds, quality surgical supplies, specialty child-delivery equipment, and incubators.
