Medical Grant Supplies

YWAM Ships Kona has been awarded two medical grants by the Blessings International — an Oklahoma-based organization dedicated to helping humanitarian agencies acquire supplies, medicine and equipment to do relief work. The grants covered almost $40,000 worth of medical equipment and supplies.
.
The first of the shipments arrived in Port YWAM Kona, Hawaii, in December. The supplies will be used by health-care volunteers aboard the m/v PACIFIC LINK. The ship is currently on deployment in Madang, Papua New Guinea.
.
Kevin Smith, who helps oversee corporate affairs for YWAM Ships Kona, said grants help the ministry’s vessels stay primed to offer quality health services to underprivileged people in isolated locations.
.
.
“We are unable to accomplish our objectives without those who provide medical supplies and equipment. We are 100 percent donor-based and rely on the kindness of many contributors to make everything work,” Smith said.

Strategic Partnership

YWAM Ships was made aware of the Blessings International grant by a physician who is active within the medical nonprofit community. Smith said those kinds of relationships allow YWAM Ships to increase the productivity of its outreaches.
.
“Friends of the ministry play such a vital role when they open up their networks to YWAM Ships,” Smith said.
