The non-profit organisation International Children Help (ICH) e.V. supports rainforest regions in Paraguay with medical care for children, who are lacking financial means. ICH e.V. asked HLO for help to ship a container full of medical equipment to Paraguay.
The organisation loaded a 40’ container with 30 hydraulic hospital beds and a donated x-ray machine. The container was sent from southern Germany via Uruguay to Paraguay´s capital Asunción, where vans picked up the equipment to transport it to different hospitals in southern Paraguay. HLO took care of the organization of the shipment from Hamburg to Asunción and managed the logistics service provider and the customs clearance for ICH e.V.
The cooperation between ICH e.V. and HLO started already in 2015, when HLO organized another shipment to Paraguay: a fully equipped ambulance car and dental office equipment. The ambulance car is still the most modern one used all over Paraguay!
