Yesterday I flew across the Rockie Mountains from Montrose to Denver and met with Project Cure (projectcure.org), one of our medical suppliers. I picked up three C.U.R.E. Kits that contain medical supplies for remote health outposts. We will be delivering them to Sepik villages on our upcoming trip to Papua New Guinea Feb. 15-28. The value of the kits combined is $10,500 and Samaritan's cost was $450. That is an excellent deal but is actually the highest ratio we pay for medical supplies.
We also talked about our plans of sending two more shipping containers to PNG this year. We are planning to purchase two 40-foot containers and use them for tool storage and office space once we begin to develop the land in Wewak. One container will be filled with medical supplies and the other will be filled half way with medical supplies. The rest of the space will be used to ship the floats for our Cessna 206 as well as the Palm's personal items.
We are thankful for Project CURE and all our partners who help us stretch the value of each dollar.
