FedEx Delivers to Front Lines of Ebola Epidemic

Our long-standing relationship with FedEx is a rather special one.  For many years now, the company has helped Heart to Heart International deliver critically needed supplies around the world.
And again FedEx has come through – delivering more of our emergency Ebola supplies to front line health workers in West Africa.

As part of Operation Ebola – not only are we in the process of opening an Ebola Treatment Unit in Liberia to combat the spread of the virus – we continue to ship supplies to our partners in Liberia who are also on the front lines of the hot zone.

This was featured recently in a story on the FedEx blog, showcasing how their team members provide a product and supply lifeline:

“FedEx leveraged its global network of logistics expertise to move the supplies by truck and by plane from the United States to Europe as part of a special donated shipment. From there, the shipment was moved to its final destination in Liberia.

FedEx is proud to be a part of this effort to help prevent the spread of the Ebola virus and to ensure those in need receive the proper medical care.  FedEx has long-standing relationships with relief organizations around the world. Through these relationships, FedEx is able to assist in situations like this to ship large amounts of supplies to those impacted the most.”

A Heart for Humanity

It’s a simple statement, but true.  Without our great partners, we couldn’t do what we do here at Heart to Heart International.

FedEx is one of those partners that makes it possible for us to connect people, and especially resources, to a world in need.  That’s why, as we celebrate our 20th Anniversary, we felt FedEx was more than deserving of the Heart for Humanity Award.

FedEx will receive the award at The Heart to Heart Experience, October 26, 2012.  There are still tickets available for the evening.  We hope you can join us for the celebration.
