Medicine Boxes continue to be needed in many places throughout the world. Current requests have been received from Mexico, Serbia, Mozambique, the Philippines, and Vietnam.
United Methodists have shown great enthusiasm for this project, but there is some confusion over the contents of a Medicine Box, and we need your help to clear it up. Many churches are still using the old Medicine Box Assembly guide--and there are significant differences:
Please order a Medicine Box Assembly Guide for complete instructions. If you are currently assembling a Medicine Box or planning to organize a Medicine Box project, please be sure you have the updated assembly guide. You should see a date on the back of the packet of 10/99. The current information is available on the web: http://gbgm-umc.org/health/medbox/ Or you may order packets from the Service Center, (800) 305-9857, Stock #5367, or from Health and Welfare Ministries by calling (212) 870-3870.
Medicine Boxes are lifesavers and a wonderful mission project-- please help us ensure that the boxes are assembled correctly by sharing this information
