MediSend International Ships Emergency Aid to Bangladesh01/28/2008
Estech Systems, Inc. (ESI) has committed funding for four containers of emergency medical supplies and equipment as part of an ongoing medical relief program.
Dallas-based humanitarian organization, MediSend International, partnering with Save the Children for distribution, is sending four forty-foot ocean containers of emergency medical relief to Bangladesh. Sponsorship funding is being provided by Estech Systems, Inc. (ESI).
The first containers of medical supplies and equipment, donated by Henry Schein Cares, left Texas for the storm-stricken country in December with subsequent shipments going in March. A devastating cyclone hit the southern coast of Bangladesh in November killing more than 3,000 and leaving tens of thousands of families homeless and in immediate need of assistance.
MediSend President and CEO, Nick Hallack, moved quickly after the disaster to plan a sustained effort on the part of the storm-victims. "We are pleased to announce a long-term program of shipments for Bangladesh through the generosity of ESI," said Hallack.

Estech Systems, Inc. (ESI), Plano, Texas-based manufacturer and distributor of communications systems, also partnered with MediSend International to send medical supplies and equipment to the Tsunami victims in Sri Lanka and to Pakistan following the devastating earthquakes in 2005.
"These emergencies fall out of the news and out of public focus soon after the events pass, but the misery and devastation goes on long after for those affected," said Eric Suder, Founder and CEO of ESI.
