Looking Back (and forward) with International Medical Corps
Each year International Medical Corp rushes to the front lines, committed to being first responders to the world's most crucial disasters. With a focus on healthcare, nutrition, shelter and protective services they seek out humanitarian disasters and rush to the scene, dedicated to those affected and providing relief.
"The challenges of 2021 have underscored the importance of global health. Together, we will continue doing our part to create a healthier, safer world." - IMC
As part of our Crafting Wellness initiative, MDF Instruments has partnered with IMC, donating more than 2,000 medical instruments over the past couple years. We're honored to provide our stethoscopes, sphygmomanometers, reflex hammers and penlights to IMC first responders.
Here's what IMC and MDF have been up to in 2021, a year where we learned to appreciate health more than ever.
In 2022 International Medical Corps plans to continue their worldwide services, as well as expand their programs in the United States. IMC states their initiative will be "strengthening existing healthcare systems by providing equipment, supplies, clinicians and training," with efforts focused on "services to marginalized groups and underserved communities ensuring adequate access to timely and critically needed health services."
From the MDF Instruments family, we hope to continue our partnership with IMC and many more organizations, because we truly believe that together we can do more, and do what's right to increase wellness in the world.

Imagine packing up supplies, flying to another country, hopping in a car to the nearest dock to then venture across waters to then set up a med clinic for a community of whom does not speak the same language you do. This is nothing more than a routine endeavour for the Floating Doctors organization. The journey these missionaries take is indescribable, going through the moody rain and beating sun is everything except a sign to go back, and a motive to move faster.View Details
