Recently, a representative of the organization (Pharmacists Without Boarders, or in German Apotheker Ohne Grenzen Deutschland), Miss Laura Bleicher, came to Hanga and stayed from 16 to 25 November. During the time she met with Hanga Abbey leadership, Abbot Octavian Massigo, OSB, to sign a special contract/agreement on how to equip Hanga Health Center with medical supplies. Part of the agreement was that there be will cost sharing between Hanga Abbey and Pharmacists Without Boarders, each contributing half of the cost of the medicines/supplies that will be ordered every three months. Indeed we owe so much the members of Pharmacists Without Boarders Germany; ours is gratitude and appreciation for what they are doing to our poor people.
During her stay, Ms. Laura, also trained employees in the pharmacy sector on how to do inventory.
