Another Shipment On Its Way

Just some of the tools shipped today

It's been several months in the preparing, the collecting, the boxing and labelling but at last we've done it. We have emptied our garage and dispatched another shipment of tools (mechanics, plumbers, electricians and carpenters tools) gardening implements, sewing machines and computers, plus a few sets of children's clothing for good measure (as well as padding around the computers).

The bulk of these (22 boxes weighing in at over half a ton) are bound for the 'Open Eyes Mission' in Cagayan De Oro City where they will be used to set up a workers co-operative in a poor community. Two other boxes are bound for other organisations that we partner with in the same area.
Once again a huge vote of thanks to Tools With A Mission and Aid to Hospitals Worldwide, plus several individual contributors, for supplying the goods and to Gary and Evelyn at Tagalog Balikbayan Services for arranging the shipping on our behalf. We simply couldn't do this without your help.

All being well the consignment should arrive at its destination in early December. In the meantime we have more orders to process so, in a week or two, we will start all over again. Oh well, it was nice having a bit of space in the garage for a day or two!
