According to Glen Erickson Specialist Help Placement for CMMB, the contents of the 20 ft container include donated relief cargoes for charity only with no commercial value.
Briefing the Sierra Leone Ambassador in the US Mr. Bockari Kortu Stevens, Paul Mikov Vice President Institutional Partnerships appreciated his visit and inspection of the cargo at the Catholic Medical Mission Board warehouse at Long Highland City in New York.
