Where in the world is TRIMEDX Foundation? Niger, Africa!
New year and new mission location. On Jan. 11, a team of two biomedical technicians, John Short and Danny Wooden, joined Medxcel associate Greg Taylor for a mission trip to Cure Hospital in Niger. CURE Niger is the only hospital in Niger offering specialty surgical care for physically disabled children with a variety of conditions. As such, the hospital’s impact is extensive. Danny and John are charged with completing preventative maintenance, as well as unboxing, assembling and installing donated equipment, while Greg creates an updated electrical wiring diagram, labels breakers and performs general facilities maintenance projects. This group of volunteers has also enjoyed the hospitality of the clinic staff, dinner at the Grand Hotel and the beautiful gardens located on the hospital campus. While Greg is a relatively new volunteer for TRIMEDX Foundation, John and Danny have volunteered their time and talent to the Foundation for 13 years. TRIMEDX Foundation is a ministry committed to sharing knowledge, inspiring independence and improving healthcare by meeting the unique needs of the communities we serve.
