Inter Care, Medical Aid for Africa
Crescent Pharma are proud supporters of the charity, Inter Care. Crescent Pharma have helped Inter Care by donating excess medicines for them to take to areas of Africa where medicines are not readily available or easily accessible.
Inter Care are a unique charity that recycles quality surplus medical waste and donates aid to African health units. Inter Care, established in 1974 has already donated over £12 million of medical aid. They are a UK based, licenced charity in Leicestershire.
The unused medicines are donated from pharmaceutical companies and medical wholesalers. Inter Care then take these aids to 130 health units in rural Africa, thus benefiting hospitals, health centres, infirmaries, prisons, dispensaries, schools, orphanages and centres for the disabled.
Alongside the urgent need for sub-Saharan Africa to receive medical aid, Inter Care realised the amount of unnecessary medical waste and sought to do something about it.
The team are a fantastic group, made up of 60 volunteers that go out of their way to help others.
