Getting the Equipment Ordered for Namibia

Along with organizing all the details for getting the team to Namibia, we also have to gather the equipment we'll take with us. Jenni Lehnert, RN -- IEP's nursing director -- works her magic and reports on her progress...
I am currently working with Project Cure to procure power equipment for surgery in Namibia. We're finalizing our order for small bone saws and high-speed drills. Surgical equipment company Stryker the equipment to Project Cure, which then distributes it to various medical missions.

We are waiting for the Stryker System 6 to take with us in August. The most exciting change is that all of the power tools are now cordless and battery powered, which makes them much easier to use when going to other countries with different power sources.
