Synergy Health plc has donated over 10,000 bottles of ASSURE™ hand sanitizers

Synergy Health plc has donated over 10,000 bottles of ASSURE™ hand sanitizers to Matthew 25: Ministries an international humanitarian aid and disaster relief organization helping the poor locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. Matthew 25: Ministries provides basic necessities, nutritional supplements, educational materials, micro-enterprise supplies and disaster relief across the US and worldwide.  Synergy Health has a long-standing relationship with the charity, and has donated reusable surgical gowns and OR linen for many years. 

 

“Donations from generous corporations such as Synergy Health help combat disease, sickness and death by providing children and adults in developing countries with products that will create a healthier living environment and prevent disease.  According to The Center for Disease Control, “hand washing is the single most important means of preventing the spread of infection” (2004). Approximately two million children die every year from diarrhea caused by unsafe drinking water and poor hygiene and sanitation.  Studies have shown that regular household hand washing with soap by children reduces diarrhea related illnesses by about 50%, saving as many as one million lives a year. In many developing countries, access to water is limited both by distance and the quality of the source.  Access to an instant, waterless sanitation product such as hand sanitizer provides a life-saving alternative to traditional soap and water while achieving similar results.” - Matthew 25: Ministries.

 

Dr Jimmy Kwok, Managing Director for Infection Prevention and Control Division commented, “I’m delighted to be able to offer medical gift aid products to support the humanitarian efforts of Matthew 25: Ministries.  The work they do to bring humanitarian relief to communities with the greatest need is vitally important and we are pleased to support this organization.  We are committed to giving back to the wider community, both in the UK and Overseas as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility.”
