Thanks For The Condoms
How often do you hear that? Well, I did today from a Nigerian friend who works at Faith Alive. She’s grateful for the visitors who brought over thousands of condoms this summer. They’re being given out to prevent spreading HIV/AIDS. Did you know that even a married couple who are both HIV+ should use them? They have different strains of the virus and need to keep from cross-contaminating.
The condoms were among other medical supplies donated by a generous non-profit called Heart To Heart International, based out of Kansas City. I received two pallets of boxes this spring from that organization and many friends helped transfer and itemize the contents into about 25 50-lb boxes (the luggage weight limit for airlines). The photos above show the packing process.
