In addition to sending containers of goods to our partners around the world, the Salvatorian Mission Warehouse also coordinates and pays for the delivery of loads of rice to our missions.
Rice is a dietary staple for those in Africa, but extreme drought sometimes means it is unavailable or not affordable for those who rely on it.
Changing the world one container at a time!
So far this year, we have shipped 12 containers, which had approximately 450,000 pounds of relief goods inside.
We have worked with 14 mission partners in 11 countries, which include Ghana, the Philippines, Haiti, Panama, Honduras, Paraguay, Uganda, Turkey/Syria, Ukraine, Tanzania, and St. Lucia.
Salvatorian Mission Warehouse
The Salvatorian Mission Warehouse sends an average of one container per week to Missions around the world. In these containers we pack life essentials such as food, clothing, tools, medical supplies, and other various necessities. Most of our donations for our containers come from our corporate sponsors, but we use monetary donations to purchase containers and cover shipping fees and for requested items that aren't able to be donated.
So far this year, we have distributed almost 250,000 pounds of rice to 24 mission partners in both Ghana and Kenya.
