Medical Supplies to Poland

The 1980s and 1990s saw a critical shortage of medical supplies in Poland. While the Legion had been supporting the efforts of other organizations to provide medical supplies since at least 1979, in 1987 they decided to begin a project of their own.

From 1987-1996 the Legion sent 18 shipments of packages of syringes, needles, and other basic medical supplies to small clinics in villages throughout Poland. By the end of the project, a total of over $93,000 had been spent on purchasing and shipping supplies to the clinics of rural Poland.
