MedEx Supply donates $100,000 worth of medical supplies to Haiti
The recent earthquake in Port Au Prince, Haiti, has left the country without the resources they need to properly care for and help their survivors. MedExSupply.com has gotten support from several of their vendors including Dynarex Corporation, a leading manufacturer of disposable medical products, to provide assistance to those in need. Both companies are located in Rockland County in New York state.
With the support of Noramie Jasmin, the mayor of Spring Valley, goods were donated to the people of Haiti that ranged from disposable hospital supplies to surgical goods and wound-care rehabilitation. Medex Supply’s customers, employees, and vendors all contributed to the initiative. The in-demand items were specifically requested to help care for survivors and included things like gauze pads, diagnostic sets, surgical staples, hand sanitizer, and more. All together, the supplies filled 44 pallets, which were packed and shipped on January 27.
“The people of Haiti are going through a trying time right now,” said Sruly Rosenberg, a Marketing Officer at MedExSupply.com. “As a company, we wanted to help them have access to the resources they need most to care for the survivors of this tragic event.”
Aromark Shipping, an ocean freight service in Newark, New Jersey, also played a big part in the relief effort. The company is family owned and has been shipping medical supplies to Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Central America, and South America for more than 15 years. They donated two 40-foot containers to ship the supplies, and also covered the shipping costs, which were estimated at $6,000.
The supplies are scheduled to arrive within two weeks and will be delivered to the Immaculate Hospital in Aux Cayes. This district is among the closest to Port Au Prince that wasn’t affected by the earthquake. One of the candidates from Haiti’s Senate, Martin Augustin, is currently in the United States. He plans to return to Haiti to ensure the goods are picked up and delivered directly to the hospital in Port Au Prince.
MedExSupply.com will continue to accept donations over the coming weeks. For more information about how you can help the Haiti relief effort, or to donate goods, call (888) 433-2300 or e-mail email@example.com.
