Medelita in Ethiopia

One of our guest bloggers here at Medelita is Becky Carlton, BSN, CNM. Becky is a nurse-midwife who has been doing missionary work for many years, with such organizations as the Peace Corps and Doctors without Borders (MSF). She is currently working as the Midwifery Dean at Gimbie Adventist Hospital in Ethiopia. Gimbie Adventist Hospital is located in Gimbie Town, in the mountainous Oromia Region of Ethiopia. The Hospital serves the residents of Gimbie Town and the surrounding rural communities (approximately 250,000 people). The majority of the population is composed of subsistence farmers, with per capita income below the international poverty line of $1 USD per day. Our Founder, Lara Manchik, PA-C, has a history of missionary work and has instilled the value of contribution and charity into who we are as a company. We were honored to be given an opportunity to assist the work that Becky is doing, and were happy to donate scrubs. Becky recently sent us pictures from Gimbie showing our scrubs in action, and I'm proud to share them with you. [gallery]
