HHI reached a significant moment in the third week of November – shipping $100 Million worth of medicine and medical supplies around the world in 2015.
For the fourth time in its history, Heart to Heart International has shipped $100 Million worth of aid and supplies to people in need around the world within one calendar year.
Throughout the year, HHI receives donations of medicine, medical aid and materials from corporate supporters and partners that allows us to expand access to healthcare and help people in crisis around the world. The value and amount of these donations fluctuates each year due to a number of factors. This calendar year is shaping up to be a big one. We’ll know once all the numbers are tallied at the end of the year, but it’s looking like it could be a record-setting year for providing aid.
What makes this even more special – HHI moved warehouse operations to a new facility during the winter of 2015, greatly reducing the amount of aid we were able to ship during the months of January and February as the new Operations Hub was put in order. Meaning, most of the work to reach this big number took place between March and November.
To give an example of just one week at the HHI Operations Hub, here are stats from a week in November:
Value of Aid & Supplies: $3,091,851.67
Countries: Six – Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Honduras, Tanzania, United States, Uzbekistan
This achievement wouldn’t be possible without the combination of HHI staff, volunteers and corporate partners working together to make a true, positive impact and provide medicine and medical aid to those in need in the US and around the world.
