KentuckyOne, Supplies Over Seas shipping supplies to West Africa

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- KentuckyOne Health and Supplies Over Seas have joined forces to send medical supplies to West Africa.

On Friday morning, volunteers loaded up medical supplies and equipment that will go to a new hospital in Togo, Africa. Right now, people living there have to drive at least eight hours to receive medical care.

KentuckyOne donated the necessary supplies that aren't being used here. Both KentuckyOne and Supplies Over Seas hope the hospital will also help people in Ghana and other surrounding cities.

The new hospital will serve about 20,000 patients each year.
