Partners For World Health was founded many years ago by Elizabeth McClellan, RN. The mission of medical service to mankind globally has really taken root from Maine to Bangladesh and many places in between. This 501 (c)3 organization is truly something of which to be proud, not only Nurse McClellan but to those of us, who endeavor to live up to the concept of Service Beyond Self.
In the few short years this great organization has existed, thousands of needy individuals around the world have benefited from its caring outreach with medical equipment, and supplies as well as much needed surgeries which would be out of reach of the poor if not for them. This, for the most part, is made of Maine medical professionals sharing their skills as volunteers to an in-need world. World Peace isn’t won by wars but by the warm, caring touch of humanitarian caregivers such as these.
This organization is based in South Portland but is expanding into the Augusta area. In so doing, it finds itself in need of a small, clean warehouse within 20 minutes of the Augusta area. If you know of a warehouse possibility please give us a call. Also, since we are a service to mankind organization, we are always in need of volunteers both medical professionals as well as much needed support staff including those of you who could be on call with a truck.
This is a great opportunity for church and civic organizations to give a helping hand sorting and cataloging medical supplies and equipment for missions throughout the world. If your school requires a certain amount of volunteer hours, here is a great opportunity to get credit for that, and at the same time, know that you are contributing to the welfare of those who wouldn’t have it without you.
To become part of the team call us at 207-774-5555, or you can email the department head at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our website is www.PartnersforWorldHealth.org. If your group or civic organization needs a speaker we would be happy to do that.
You will make new friends and become part of something that you will certainly be proud of. Retired medical professionals are always welcome to assist on missions. Add meaning to your life and join the team “P.F.W.H.” The world needs you.
