Service Trips Share Our Strength Around the World
During our annual medical relief service trips, we support underserved communities in developing countries around the world. Employees are encouraged to volunteer to provide healthcare education and other related services.
A team of 16 Medline employees traveled to Nicaragua for our last trip, where they taught children about hygiene. Each child received a kit consisting of toothbrushes, toothpaste and other necessities to maintain good oral health. Medline supports the United Nations Millennium Development Goal to reduce deaths of children under five years old by two-thirds based on 1990 rates totaling 12.7 million.
Looking forward, a new team of employee volunteers will be traveling to One World Surgery Center in Honduras.
