NWU Donates 1,000 Pounds of Medical Supplies to Haiti
One thousand pounds of medical supplies are headed to Haiti thanks to a recent NWU supply drive.
The two-week supply drive — led by NWU biology major Jamie Krahn — resulted in 1,000 lbs. of supplies including hand sanitizer, gauze, aspirin, baby bottles and more.
“Students may not be able to afford to send money to Haiti,” Krahn said at the start of the supply drive. “But they can buy a box of Band-aids.”
The supplies will be delivered to Project CURE in Denver, Colorado, the world’s largest distributor of medical supplies. From there, the medical supplies will be shipped to earthquake-ravaged Haiti. NWU students were first introduced to Project CURE last year when they collected medical supplies from Nebraska hospitals and medical centers and delivered them to the Denver warehouse.
