Ann Terputac: Saw Needs Firsthand in Mozambique

Ann Terputac was primarily a trauma nurse at Allegheny General Hospital before she retired. She saw the need for supplies in resource-poor areas when she hand-carried sutures, lice medication and other materials from Global Links to Mozambique through a mission program at her church. Oh that trip, she was given one mask for herself to wear for ten days working with tuberculosis patients.  She found Global Links when she was preparing for that trip and came on a Global Links to Health tour – and says she was delighted to learn that a medical supply recovery organization like this existed.  She says she is glad to be part of an organization that puts surplus to good use, and recognizes the importance of sending exactly the right donation to help a resource-poor hospital provide the best care it can to its patients.
