A Message from the
Partners for World Health Team
May 28, 2020
As we continue to face the COVID-19 crisis, we want to reassure you that the mission of Partners for World Health (PWH) will continue to serve those in need throughout Maine, New England and around the world.
As of June 1st, 2020 we will be expanding our work to include more of our essential activities and volunteer opportunities, all by appointment only. See our updated Office Closure Procedures.
In response to the COVID-19 global pandemic, PWH is committed to making our resources available to healthcare facilities and first responders. Over the years, our New England partners have helped our organization grow and flourish, ensuring a future for PWH. Now, it is our turn to return the favor.
These past few months, PWH has loaned ventilators, beds, IV poles, IV pumps and other needed pieces of medical equipment for use by healthcare workers and first responders at many of our partners organizations on the front lines in New England and New York. Additionally, we have been able to provide Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), such as non-sterile gowns and masks.
Even with this shift in focus, we have remained committed to our international partners in the developing world, preparing and planning for many container shipments of medical supplies and equipment.
