Cash is the most economical way for us to get the needed supplies. The cost of a tube of scabies cream in Bangladesh is $1; in Canada it's $28 plus shipping. Many items are less expensive to buy overseas, than to buy here. But some items (below) can be sent from here, keeping in mind that the only way we can send supplies is in Bonnie's luggage and that of the Interns.
