Here in America we have much to be thankful for and so much we take for granted that it is hard to imagine the needs of people in developing countries. While there are organizations that can provide greatly needed equipment and supplies at a deep discount cost there is difficulty in obtaining the necessary funding to get materials, equipment and supplies shipped and delivered to the organizations in need. There is a great need for "Shepherds" to fund the projects. C.H.R.I.S.T. (Christian helpers responding in service together) Shepherds is a volunteer organization that is attempting to raise the necessary funds to deliver over $71,000. worth of medical equipment, materials and supplies to ST. John Catholic Dispensary in Papiri, Nigeria.
