GWP assists charity in shipping medical supplies

Cricklade-based GWP has supported a Christian charity that provides medical supplies and aid to assist those involved in missionary work overseas.

The MMN (Medical Missionary News) charity – based in Swindon and established over 100 years ago – sends around 20 containers of equipment and medicines to several countries each year. This activity is in addition to providing grants to support medical mission projects around the world.

GWP has supplied a number of oversized boxes into which the charity can pack items before they are shipped overseas. The charity will specifically use the packaging to send equipment and supplies to several African locations across Zambia and Angola. Similar large boxes are used by several of GWP’s customers for industrial applications.

Hannah Pearce, Communications Manager at MMN, commented, “We knew that GWP had assisted a number of charities in the local area, so when we required packaging, we decided to reach out to them. GWP immediately indicated that they could help, and we took delivery of the boxes very quickly. They are absolutely perfect for safely packing the items we ship across the globe and maximising the available space in our shipping containers.”

Jay Daggar, Sales Manager, GWP Packaging, added, “We always try to help charities within the local area wherever possible. MMN do some vital work in countries with limited access to healthcare, so we are delighted that we could help.”
