Issaquah, WA (PRWEB) February 27, 2014
Aschiana USA, a support arm to Aschiana Afghanistan, an Afghan non-governmental organization that has provided services to people in Afghanistan since 1995, recently chose QuickMedical as their supplier of emergency mylar blankets to displaced person camps outside Kabul. The Aschiana USA board chose QuickMedical over other suppliers because of QuickMedical’s well-known commitment to American service veterans and its service veteran-owned small business status.
One year ago, Aschiana USA began the mylar blanket program on the suggestion of Dr. Craig Garfield of Northwestern University Medical Center. The first deployment of the emergency blankets was very favorably received by doctors and patients in Afghanistan.
The new supply of emergency mylar blankets from QuickMedical was recently delivered by Dr. Mark Scoffield of American Medical Overseas Relief and is expected to help continue to lower respiratory infection rates and child and infant mortality.
Aschiana USA is extremely supportive of American service veterans, so the choice to purchase from QuickMedical was very clear, due to QuickMedical’s veteran owned status and ongoing support of veterans groups.
