>So, my lovely friend Umm Farouq had a very good idea. It’s the kind of thing that goes over big in the land of convenience and I hope it will here as well. We’ve been hearing about the need for medicines, supplies, etc. Well, Umm Farouq asked herself, what should go in such a package? What are the most needed items? How can I ensure that what I pick up will be useful. Then she had an idea.
She got on the phone and called some people she knows at the local powerhouse Pharmacy One. “Can you help?,” she asked them. Sure enough, they can. So, here’s her idea implemented in a simple, user-friendly way.
Beginning tomorrow, January 5, the Pharmacy One chain of pharmacies, with 40 locations throughout the Kingdom, will have available Medical Relief Packages that can be purchased and sent to the people of Gaza. They will offer three packages, at costs of 20, 50, and 100 JD. For those of you wanting to help out with medical aid in Gaza, which is in the direst conditions imaginable, here is your opportunity!
Aramex will be picking up Medical Relief Packages at all Pharmacy One locations, making it even easier to donate. So, please go out and support if you have the ability to do so. And, even though she thinks she doesn’t deserve, GO Umm Farouq!
One thing that American companies typically do very well is make it as easy as possible to give. Umm Farouq’s idea takes the guess-work, concern, and hassle out of giving medicines. So, take a minute to stop in a Pharmacy One store and grab a Medical Relief Package. Thanks to Pharmacy One for making this possible and Umm Farouq for finding the right channels to make her own contribution.
Happy Supply Runs!
