Operation recycles, reuses hospital equipment
San Diego Union-Tribune

Hope worked the room Thursday.

And if hope blooms the way Laura Luxemburg envisions, our community will green up, gather up and help send excess medical supplies and equipment to hospitals and clinics in Africa and other developing countries.

Luxemburg is the founder of Ssubi is Hope Foundation, a 501(c)(3) which, along with other charitable organizations, has helped “the poorest of the poor” at the Bishop Asili Medical Center in Luwero, Uganda. The rural hospital, run by seven Catholic nuns, delivers care to more than 660,000 people living in 49 nearby villages and is the only hospital within a 100-mile radius.
