Subject: Medical aid takes flight  to Scarlett Ryan recently arrived in Progreso with a suitcase full of sticky solutions.

The Ottawa resident delivered medical items, normally destined for a landfill site, to Hermana Aurelia, interim director of San Joaquin Nursing Home.

The medical provisions came from Not Just Tourists (NJT), a not-for-profit program that collects surplus medical supplies for countries in need.

Bandages, needles, and various medications for the aged were assembled by the volunteer NJT group in Ottawa.

Hermana Aurelia was delighted with the donations. She was especially pleased by the syringes for her diabetic patients.

Canadians see landfills with surplus medical supplies that are no longer needed, says Ryan.  ” A very dear friend of mine experienced cancer rehab and saw how these (unused) supplies were casually garbaged.  So she researched where she could donate such supplies and found NJT.”

Ryan carried the mission forward for her friend by contacting Sharon Helgason, who suggested the nursing home, where she started an exercise program for the elderly a number of years ago with the help of Canadian and American volunteers.

The NJT provided a letter in English and Spanish for the Customs department.


Thanks so much to Scarlett and NJT.
