International freight forwarding and transportation specialists Dimerco have stepped forward to assist in shipping vital medical supplies to COVID-hit India, which is currently facing a humanitarian crisis. Mr. Alexander King & Mr. Jeff Chen of Dimerco New York team partnered with the charity ‘Breath for Humanity’, to source and donate nearly 2 tons of medical devices. The life-saving supplies were shipped from Philadelphia in the US to Bangalore in India, with the collaboration of Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, The Islamic Council of North America and The Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.
The shipment included 75,000 N95 & respirators, over 15,000 PPE gown and shields, and over 50 boxes of tracheostomy tubes. Mr. King explained, “When I was first introduced to the shipper, Ms. Noor Shaik and her organization, I was immediately touched by her passion to help India. Since our team in New York has the experience handling urgent PPE’s during the peak of the pandemic, I knew we would be able to utilize our experience and expertise to help Noor’s efforts by offering our services free of charge. By utilizing Dimerco’s platform, I am confident this story can reach and inspire others to help her and her organization’s initiative.”
The Dimerco teams in USA and India supported this charitable initiative by providing freight and transportation free of charge, and since this May, Dimerco keeps moving more crucial supplies, such as oxygen concentrators.
