If you are in Puerto Morelos this Saturday we are having a little charity bazaar in the Town Square 10am-2pm, we are raising funds to complete a classroom at one of the overcrowded kindergartens in the colonia

Hi cat, my partner and I have a whopping 28kg luggage allowance, so I was thinking about bringing some donations.

What sort of things are you after in terms of school and medicine supplies? And how would we go about donating them?

Thanks!

They need teaching materials such as alphabet and math flash cards, puzzles, brain teasers ( like putting round peg into round hole), posters, maps. Hopefully you can find things where language is not a barrier

Also dry ink erasable whiteboard markers,folders

reams of white copy paper,Lexmark 26 black ink cartridges, toner cartridge for Samsung SCX-4216D1 XAA copy machine

Medical supplies needed for ambulance service and public clinic - kidney trays, gauzes, bandages various, minor surgery equipment, elastic bandages various sizes, sterile latex gloves 7/8, mouth covers, adhesive tapes, syringes 3.5mm, stethoscopes and more but I have just received a new list from the doctors and have yet to get it translated so I will update this as soon as I can and after I filter out things like operating tables that you may find hard to fit in your luggage!

Thanks for that, there are quite a few items there which shouldn't be a problem to get hold of, and are cheap and light (don't think I can stretch to ink cartridges I'm afraid)

Latex gloves, bandages, plasters etc will certainly not be a problem. Are any pain-killers useful, or not so much?

Thanks!

Lol. I can get some of those pretty cheap so will bring some.

How do I go about donating these things? We're staying at the ERC June 14th-28th: any chance of meeting someone either at the hotel or in Puerto Morelos?
