wishing-gravatar1October is almost here and before you know it – you’ll be back! So as you are starting to get your lightweight clothes ready, buying your Bucerias must-haves, please have a look at our charities wish lists and see what’s on them that you can slip into your suitcase and bring down.

    SALUD (Health centre) etc:
    A nurse & colleagues at Foothills Hospital in Calgary have collected surplus supplies which are ready to be brought to Bucerias for donating to the bomberos, Red Cross, local hospitals. She will arrange to get the supplies to you, all packed for travel. If you are flying on WestJet, they will allow a free bag for humanitarian efforts. If you are driving, hopefully you could find room for a bag or box of supplies.
    Also, if you are or know a medical services provider, please see what surplus supplies you can get to bring to Bucerias. We all know how much waste there is in the US and Canadian medical systems. And there is a great need here for even basic supplies.

    Please contact Sue with questions, offers of help, etc: [email protected]
