December 23, 2015 -- Over the next three years, Henry Schein will donate $350,000 in healthcare products to World Vision, a global humanitarian organization that is helping refugees, including Syrian refugees living in Europe and the Middle East.

Henry Schein will donate gloves, masks, gowns, and gauze, and World Vision will distribute the products to its local partner organizations. The units will serve about 7,500 people, including those in refugee camps.

"This donation will ensure that the medical professionals working with World Vision and their partners have the necessary supplies to provide crucial care to refugees throughout the world, including the men, women, and children affected by the devastating crisis in Syria," stated Stanley Bergma, CEO and chairman of the board of Henry Schein, in a press release.

"We are incredibly thankful to Henry Schein for this generous donation, and for sharing World Vision's commitment to helping those most in need," stated Richard Stearns, president of World Vision USA.

World Vision has been one of Henry Schein's nongovernmental organization partners since 2014. The donation is part of the Henry Schein Private Brand Donation Program, an initiative of Henry Schein Cares.
