Medical Brigade and Supplies

The Lesotho Connection, along with other partners, assisted with bringing quality health care providers, equipment and medical supplies to clinics and hospitals in the Mohale’s Hoek district. Lesotho has a high incidence of severe medical diseases including HIV/AIDS, blindness from cataracts, infant and childhood mortality from infection and early adult death from poor nutrition and dental care.

In 2018 TLC facilitated shipping a 40 foot container of medical equipment and supplies from MedWish in Ohio that was distributed to 7 clinics and hospitals. Also in 2018, a team of 5 doctors spent a week seeing patients at 5 clinics. That same team has plans to return again and expand the outreach.
