Adventist Aid Convoy for Kosovo Includes Mobile Medical Unit

Watford, England .... [ANN]

An aid convoy comprising 14 tons of medical and other needed aid, together with a mobile medical clinic, left Stanborough Park on Thursday, September 30, bound for Kosovo. The mobile medical clinic is an exciting joint project funded by the Adventist Development and Relief Agency ADRA-UK and the SOS Bosnia charity. It will be handed over to ADRA-Kosovo upon arrival and will be put to immediate use bringing much needed medical care to the citizens of Kosovo.

Accompanying the convoy are ADRA drivers David Balderstone and Harry Wilby, together with Dr Elaine Laycock and drivers from SOS Bosnia. Helping to co-ordinate the arrival of the convoy in Kosovo is Bob Kitchen, who is currently serving as Logistics Officer with ADRA-Kosovo.

The ADRA-UK office has been very busy over the last couple of months with an aid convoy having recently returned from the Nis Psychiatric hospital and a further trip to Croatia planned for the end of this month. It is important to facilitate these aid convoys prior to the onset of the winter months. [Paul Tompkins]
