In Guinea-Bissau Friends of Mind/Amigos de Mente partners with the health ministry to provide medical supplies, equipment and services. Currently we are working with the Simon Mendes Hospital in Bissau which is in danger of closing. We are raising funds to send a 40 foot container of medical equipment and supplies to the hospital as well as volunteers doctors and nurses to assist the staff of Simon Mendes in November 2011. This will be our first trip to Guinea-Bissau.
On October 8th from 4-9 pm at the University of Southern Maine we are planning a fund raising event in celebration of Brazil and Guinea-Bissau’s independence. Food, dancing, the arts and culture will be celebrated.
This event is co-sponsored by the USM Office of Multicultural Affairs, Multicultural Students Association and the Law Students Association.
