Aidmatrix Helps Facilitate Delivery of $1.9 Million in Medical Supplies Through IMEC

Aidmatrix's International Transportation Program helped facilitate the delivery of $1.9 Million in medical equipment to Tuvalu, a remote Polynesian island, through IMEC (International Medical Equipment Collaborative) - equipment that likely otherwise would have been land filled. IMEC is a nonprofit whose mission is to serve doctors and nurses in developing countries by providing them with quality tools to advance the standard of health care for their nation's poor. Nearly 4,000 of the island's 12,000 inhabitants are children so the issue of adequate medical care is essential, especially with the prevalence of skin infections, kidney failure from diabetes, cardiac conditions, and worm infestations.
