The company has committed to providing at least $250,000 in product support, including medical supplies, hygiene kits, and PPE, to its NGO partners.
In response to the devastating earthquake in Haiti, Henry Schein Inc announced it is aiding relief efforts by partnering with several non-governmental organizations (NGOs) responding to the disaster, as well as by opening its disaster relief fund. The company is partnering with Americares, Catholic Medical Mission Board (CMMB), Give Hope Global, Heart to Heart International, IsraAID, MAP International, MedShare, Project C.U.R.E, Project HOPE, and World Vision.
According to Henry Schein, many of these NGOs are working through the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), with initial requests for critical medicines and medical supplies, hygiene kits, water purification kits, and personal protective equipment (PPE). Henry Schein’s commitment is providing at least $250,000 in product support to its NGO partners.
In addition to this product support, Henry Schein is opening the 2021 Disaster Relief Fund through the Henry Schein Cares Foundation to support relief efforts in Haiti. The company and the Foundation are supporting the Fund with an initial $50,000 donation, and the company will match Team Schein Member contributions up to $25,000.
“As we did in the wake of the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, Henry Schein once again stands ready to help the people of Haiti through this latest catastrophe and to support the health care professionals providing medical care,” said Stanley M. Bergman, chairman of the Board and CEO. “We are committed to support the essential work of our NGO partners in assisting the health care systems and people of Haiti with rebuilding and recovery efforts, and we will continue to respond to emerging needs as more information becomes available.”
