This story first appeared in the FedEx Delivering for Good Report.

Heart to Heart International improves healthcare access in the US and around the world. FedEx is a long-time supporter of Heart to Heart International, and through a recent donation helped the organization create cold chain storage capabilities. Cold chain storage is essential for keeping many medicines and vaccines, including the COVID-19 vaccine, safe along the journey from manufacturer to end user. 

“With the vital medicines and vaccines that we distribute to countries throughout the world as well as to vulnerable communities right here in the United States, we had been researching, fundraising and pricing cold storage units for the past year,” Kim Carroll, CEO of Heart to Heart International, said. “With cold storage units in place, we are able to be a part of the vaccine distribution process and continue to be a part of providing critical health access during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
