Schmitz & Söhne and company Lautenschläger have just wrapped their presents
Ludolf Schmitz and his son Friedrich will donate two brand new operating tables and extensive accessories for the hospital Diospi Suyana. The meeting in Wickede brought back memories of the missionary doctor’s first meeting back in 2006. “Why did you make the biggest donation in kind in your company’s history to Diospi Suyana twelve years ago,” asked Dr John the Senior CEO, “Especially since back then our hospital was not even up and running?” – Ludolf Schmitz answered without hesitation: “I knew immediately that this project would be a success!”
In Köln Mr and Mrs Meurer smile at the camera. The owners of the company Lautenschläger had to wait for the German-Peruvian for over an hour since he was stuck in traffic, but their good mood could not be broken by something like that! Similarly, as they did a dozen years ago, they will also send a very big present to Peru. The Steri in the background can sterilize four operation screens at once. This equates to a doubling of our sterilization team’s capacity.
All above mentioned donations in kind and the solar batteries I wrote about on Tuesday make up a six-digit sum. I am in negotiations with five further companies.
With his journey through the Ruhrgebiet Dr John completes his current tour through Europe. In the past week he visited nine companies/organisations in Germany and Switzerland. Thanks be to God that he completed the 3,300km along wintry roads safely.
