Graham-Field Partners with Mercy Ships
Atlanta, Georgia, July 6, 2016, FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Graham-Field Partners With Mercy Ships
GF Health Products, Inc. (“Graham-Field”) is embarking on a new journey with Mercy Ships to help provide critical care to those most in need. As part of this Community Giving effort, Graham-Field will be donating medical equipment to help support Mercy Ships’ surgical care efforts in Africa and other medically underserved locations. Established in 1978, Mercy Ships is a volunteer-based international charity that delivers free, world-class healthcare services to medically underserved nations worldwide. Mercy Ships has performed over 79,000 life-saving surgeries in 587 ports, according to www.mercyships.org.
Mercy Ships is able to provide healthcare to so many individuals by operating a hospital ship. The ship docks in an impoverished city for 10 months, while treating as many individuals as their staff is able. Healthcare is just one part of their mission; Mercy Ships also builds schools and clinics to support the community after the ship departs. In this way Mercy Ships strengthens the quality of life wherever it anchors.
“We are proud to partner with Mercy Ships and its 1,400 volunteers in their mission to make healthcare accessible to developing nations. We are specifically supporting their ophthalmic surgery projects in impoverished communities with in-kind donations of our Hausted stretchers.” states Ken Spett, GF Health Products, Inc. CEO.
We hope Graham-Field’s partnership with Mercy Ships will help keep the organization sailing for many years to come! To read more about Mercy Ships, visit their website, www.mercyships.org.
