Medical Supplies Desperately Needed in The Gambia

Here’s a list I got recently from one of our best medical contacts in The Gambia.   If you have any of these items available, please let me know and I can make sure they get to the clinics in The Gambia.  As always, thanks for your donations.
Here is the list. This is stuff we always need. The stethoscopes and BP cuffs we desperately need all that we had are not functional anymore. Anything you can help us with would be fantastic. I leave it to you to pick and choose.
