Medical Expeditions

Dear Hennessy,

On behalf of our entire expedition team, I would like to thank you for hammocks that we received for our Borneo special expedition.
 
We spent the of July travelling through the villages and jungle of Sawarak, Borneo providing mental and dental care as well as first aid training to members of the indigenous Kelalrt and Penan People. It was a grueling four weeks - we were often on the move and spending long days running the clinics, teaching and trekking. But by the end of the month, we treated over 500 people! The problems we encountered were varied and spanned anything from body aches and malnutrition, to scabies, tuberculosis and maleria. The local people were so kind and generous, and showed much gratitude for our presence. It was an experience of a lifetime. We thank you so much for helping contribute to what turned out to e a very successful expedition.
The hammock systems were amazing - perfect for use in the jungle or in the village longhouses. They were easy to set up, comfortable, and kept us bug free (which turned out to be essential as there was a malaria outbreak while we were there). After a long day trekking through the jungle or running a village clinic, it was nice to have a Hennessy to come back to. I've included some pictures of the hammocks from the expedition
we hope you'll enjoy. Thanks againn, we really appreciate it!

Hello!
Good to be back stateside, just wanted to drop you a note that the hammock performed to the highest caliber. Got caught in a fairly significant wind/rain storm and didn't feel a drop.../Just want to say thank you so much, I was the envy of our team! More to come, but thank you so much in the meantime.
