Since 2018, DripDrop has been donating sticks of its oral rehydration solution to International Medical Corps to provide dehydration relief to Ebola patients and medical workers fighting to save lives in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
"When a patient has Ebola, there is an increased loss of water and electrolytes that are expelled through vomit, sweat, urine and breathing," said Machoz a Mambango, nurse manager at an International Medical Corps-supported health center in the Beni health zone. "When these losses are not replaced adequately, a deficiency of liquids and electrolytes develops in the body. The availability of DripDrop or other ORS helps to save lives."
An ORS is also one of the top critical supplies requested during disaster recovery. In a year when the world is facing unprecedented disasters, including the COVID-19 pandemic, devastating wildfires, and hurricanes, the need to increase awareness of preparedness and emergency response has never been more critical. That’s why in addition to continuing to provide aid in the fight against Ebola, DripDrop is expanding its partnership with International Medical Corps to support this much needed hygiene kit program.
"DripDrop’s donations mean that we will be able to preposition the resources and supplies our frontline teams need to respond quickly in the aftermath of an emergency," said Erica Tavares, International Medical Corps’ VP of Institutional Partnerships and Philanthropy. "And, this campaign will help to raise awareness about emergency preparedness – helping families and communities be ready to stay safe and healthy when disaster strikes."
This partnership with International Medical Corps expands on past give-back programs between the two parties, including product donations to more than 250 hospitals across the U.S. during the COVID-19 pandemic and International Medical Corps’ emergency medical field units in COVID-19 hotspots. DripDrop has also provided more than $500,000 worth of DripDrop to the National Volunteer Firefighter Council (NVFC) and ongoing product donations and boots-on-the-ground medical support to organizations like FIMRC.
