On May 6th, a 40-foot container carrying medical humanitarian aid for Armenia was loaded and shipped out of MedShare’s Southeastern Regional Distribution Center. These items will be received in Armenia by the NGO Greek Medical Fund, Hippocrates of Hellenicare, and distributed to eight local under-resourced hospitals, including the Alaverdi City Hospital, Vanadzar Hospital N1, Spitak Hospital, and Tashir Hospital.
The container holds over 11,000 lbs of donated medical supplies and equipment, such as:
- urinary catheters
- exam gloves
- sterile gauze
- oral swabs
- an electrosurgical unit
- and much more!
Hellenicare is an NGO that delivers humanitarian assistance programs in Georgia, Ukraine, and Armenia in a wide variety of areas, including human rights advocacy, infrastructure restoration, economic development, and of course, healthcare. Please visit their website for more information.
We are looking forward to collaborating with Hellenicare again on an upcoming container shipment to Ukraine!
