Labeling: how and why

The (seafreight-)container contains goods from several donors. Unloading and distributing is done at the National Medical Store not at the hospital.

If we do not know what is inside a package, we have to open it first and then close it again (at temperatures of up to 50°C inside the container). Contents and donor should therefore be listed on the outside of the packing material or on packing lists which refer to each (distinctly marked) package. Label the package not just with "No. 5", but use something like "Sender: XYZ / No. 5" instead.

We would like to thank our donors, but this is not possible if we do not know who donated what. E.g. to our great joy we received a x-ray image intensifier in February 2001. Unfortunately we were not able to determine the donor and therefore could not thank for it. A packing list with the name of the donor (or a label on the device) would help avoid such situations.
