The patients in the Buruli ulcer clinic badly need sterile bandages to protect from further infection after the wounds are healed, but the clinic has no funds to replenish the bandages. Instead, the patients must wash out their bandages and reuse them.
We are seeking donations of medical grade gauze bandages, Kerlix antimicrobial bandages, Coban self-adhering wrap and latex-free nitrile exam gloves to stock the clinic. A wonderful listener just wrote to me and said she found all of these items at Drugstore.com at decent prices and had them shipped directly to Point Hope’s office. If you can help us stock the clinic with these much needed sterile supplies, we would greatly appreciate your support.
