MEMO Cuba Crate-Packing: Oct. 18/08

I helped out a bit at the MEMO Cuba (Medical Equipment Modernization Opportunity) crate-packing day. MEMO sends perfectly good (but non-digital) equipment discarded in Thunder Bay to rural hospitals in Cuba. (Then team members travel there and ensure that it is installed and that the personnel are trained.)

The labour and equipment are donated, but each crate costs $9,000.00 to ship.

Dr. Harvey tests out the equipment.

Every available space is used in the crate.
