“Church Assists in Shipping Medical Items to Mexico,” Ensign, Aug. 1991, 78
Hundreds of surplus items of medical and hospital equipment have gone to health care facilities in Mexico through a joint project involving the Church.
The shipment, which went out on June 6, was a cooperative effort. Intermountain Health Care, an organization with facilities in various parts of Utah, Idaho, and Wyoming, donated the equipment, which was stored and shipped by the Church. Distribution in Mexico was handled by a private volunteer organization.
The equipment, all in good condition, ranged from beds and medical examination tables to file cabinets and typewriters. It came from IHC facilities throughout Utah, including some formerly owned by the Church.
