Thank You Western Digital and Cindy Grace, Jocelyn Kuno, Ky Begley, and the engineering team.
Today was the big Western Digital volunteer event, and they supplied us with people to help and medical supplies. I had a pretty good idea of how it would go today but I underestimated the willingness to help that the volunteers demonstrated.
We filled the SUV with enough medical supplies to make roughly 300 first aid kits. We didn't want to overwhelm the volunteers so we brought what we thought was "just enough." We weren't sure how many medical supplies the Western Digital volunteers had donated, but we would see what was there once we arrived at their Irvine office. The volunteers had donated a lot of supplies that we could use right away and they also had some of the supplies that are needed in Ghana.
Twenty blood pressure monitors and four blood glucose monitors with the test strips!!! This may not seem like a lot but this is more than the entire hospital had in Cape Coast, Ghana. I can't express how much I appreciate everything today and how grateful I am. These items are in high demand in underdeveloped areas because they simply don't have the funds to get them.
In addition, Western Digital gave Hearts for Hearts Foundation a very sizable grant to get these supplies to where they are needed. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
