Project HOPE, a global health education and humanitarian assistance organization, has delivered much needed medicines and medical supplies to facilities in Uzbekistan.
The humanitarian aid, valued at more than $1.3 million, was donated by global pharmaceutical and medical supply companies, including Covidien, Ethicon, Rouses Point Pharmaceuticals and SINAI Hospital. The donated goods include cardiovascular medicines and supplies needed to treat a range of illnesses.
“Project HOPE continues to work closely with Uzbekistan’s Ministry of Health to address their most critical health needs. Thanks to HOPE’s corporate partners, we were able to secure crucial medicines for communities struggling with high health care costs. Uzbekistan Airways has played a key role in providing cargo space for this shipment and ensuring its safe delivery to the country,” said Abdunabi Kuchimov, Country Director for Project HOPE, an independent, non-profit organization.
Project HOPE has coordinated the delivery of more than $101 million USD in donated pharmaceuticals and medical supplies to Uzbekistan since its independence in 1991.
