Delivering a World of Health and Hope .
Starting 2018 with TWO containers to Ghana!
After a record breaking 2017, SOS began 2018 by sending two containers to Ghana. The containers are headed to the University for Development Studies (UDS) Hospital in the Upper West Region of Wa, Ghana. With a population of almost 100,000, the people living in Wa and surrounding areas depend on the hospital as their only source of medical care in the immediate area.

Thank you to the Rotary Club of Rock Mount, Virginia and the Rotary Club of Louisville for helping to sponsor this container and sending health & hope to the people of Ghana!

Health & Hope Arrives in Nigeria
Parishioners of Louisville's Cathedral of the Assumption partnered with Supplies Over Seas to send a 40 foot shipping container full of life-saving medical supplies and equipment to the Nnewi Diocese in southeastern Nigeria, Africa, where Fr. Lawrence Ezike, a Catholic priest, is assigned.

Fr. Ezike first learned about Supplies Over Seas in 2016 while he was in Louisville assisting at the downtown Cathedral. The medical supplies and equipment will help supply the rurally-located Lawrence Ezike Foundation Hospital (LEFH) , named in honor of Fr. Ezike’s deceased father.

The LEFH partners with the Ijeoma Cynthia Uduji Bronchial Asthma Foundation , named in memory of Fr. Ezike’s niece, Ijeoma Cynthia Uduji , to assist those living in the more urban areas. Together, LEFH and ICUBAF, work to bring relief, joy and improved health to the surrounding region.
A different kind of March Madness!
Supplies Over Seas will be participating in  Brackets For Good , a fundraising tournament for local nonprofits. Every point will make a difference in this competition to help SOS advance to the championship!

Tip off March 2nd! More to come!
Thank You!
