On gloves and masks and gauze

Thanks to our great supporters, Henry Schein Halas, the TLDP has 13 cartons of much needed consumables heading over to TL by ship, due to arrive before the first team this year. Our teams use, on average, 1200 pieces of gauze, 4200 pairs of gloves, 500 masks, 700 cotton rolls, 1000 capsules of filling material and 2000 cartridges of local anaesthetic every trip – that’s a lot of stuff! HSH’s generous donations save this program a lot of dollars, allowing us to spend the money on much needed equipment upgrades and making your kind donations go further. Thank you HSH!

Thankyou also to our fabulous volunteers at Rotary’s ‘Donation in Kind’ Warehouse in Footscray, Victoria. They received, crated and physically manhandled our supplies onto the ship. Thanks guys! We are incredibly lucky to have such amazing supporters. This program would cease to exist without you. Here’s to a good year!
