Even though we arrived late into the night, the Global Brigades staff had us up early eating breakfast and briefing us on our activities for the first day. One of the biggest jobs we had to do upon arrival in country was to count, sort, and prepare the medicine for our medical brigade. Over the past 6 months, we collected medicine via medicine drives at Rite Aid, where we stood outside and asked people if they would kindly donate to our cause. Additionally, we reached out to local doctors, dentists, pharmacists, and hospitals for their support as well. We did a lot of medicine counting and sorting prior to coming to the country, but we weren’t allowed to open the bottles and boxes to sort into the doses that we give to people in country due to customs and immigration restrictions. We split our group into small teams, and everyone efficiently worked together to count the medicine to prepare for the medical brigade. From prenatal vitamins to toothpaste, we brought over $95,000 worth of medicine with us!
