Esperança Holds Dedication for New Medical Supply Building

Esperança is pleased to announce a new 648 square foot medical supply building has been constructed on their Phoenix campus thanks to a long time donors and supporters, Bob and Edith Malone.  The building is where Esperança receives, inventories, processes and ships all of the donated and recycled medical supplies and equipment that they receive throughout the year, which are sent to hospitals and clinics that serve the poorest and most remote areas of Nicaragua.  A building dedication and ceremony will take place on Tuesday, May 9 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 1911 W. Earll Drive in Phoenix. 

“We’re honored to have Bob Malone and his family as partners,” said James Hoyt, President and CEO of Esperança.  “His generous gift has allowed us to build a space we’ve needed for a long time.  Bob traveled to Nicaragua with us and saw the work we do first hand.  His donation not only helped build the medical supply building in Phoenix, but also a community center in Bolivia and it helped fund our endowment.  We are incredibly grateful!”

Last year, Esperança received over $2 million in donations of gently used and recycled medical supplies and equipment.  These supplies are essential to ensure that Esperança’s partnering hospitals in Nicaragua are equipped throughout the year with the tools to transform lives, especially, when volunteer surgical teams are on the ground, providing surgery at no cost to ensure that no once faces poverty alone.
