Remember back in January... The Autoclave Saga!
Just to refresh your memory, this last mission we were able to bring down Peter Mcnamara with Providence St Vincent Bio-Engineering, to help fix the Autoclave sterilizer at Juan Bosch Hospital.
Having this fixed would enable us to do more cases, hence help more people! When we left it was cycling The first time in years, but still wasn't getting up to the correct temperature to sterilize our instruments. We were disappointed to say the least but vowed to stick with it long distance. As we had made friends with the engineer, Helario, at Juan Bosch we felt somewhat confident that we would get things working. Well today we got word from Helario...
"The autoclave is successfully operating at full capacity and temperature!"
We are so grateful to have this functioning again and it will make a world of difference for next year and future missions!
Special thanks to Steve & Jay at Tuttenauer and Providence St. Joseph for their help and support!
And a Big THANK YOU! to all of you who donate to Operation Walk Freedom to Move for making this all possible.
