Two 40-foot containers filled with medical equipment and supplies have set sail from the US to Nepal. To meet the Cleft & Burn Center's target opening date of July 1, 2011, Globus Relief worked diligently to assemble all the hard and soft goods needed for the hospital, including beds, gurneys, surgical instruments, supply carts, gowns, dressings, and blankets. Each container holds approximately 0,000 in supplies and equipment; by the time another two containers ship before the end of the year, the Nepal Cleft and Burn Center will be outfitted with more than million in equipment that was acquired through Globus Relief for about $.20 on the dollar.
The items have a long journey ahead of them: after leaving the US, the ship reaches Calcutta, India and the containers are placed on 18-wheelers bound for Raxaul, India. They travel by ground through Birgunj, Nepal before reaching Kathmandu - in all, the equipment will have traveled more than 9295 nautical miles and 1400 miles over land.
