Dayton-based Midmark is partnering with a humanitarian organization to provide healthcare in developing countries.

Midmark is partnering with World Vision, , a global Christian humanitarian organization, by donating medical and dental equipment through corporate sponsorships and product promotions. In 2017, Midmark donated nearly 500 items such as sterilizers, side chairs, stools, exam tables, cabinets and surgical chairs to World Vision, who then distributed them around the world, including Afghanistan, Burundi, Chad, El Salvador, Mali, Nicaragua, Somalia, South Sudan, Swaziland and Zambia.

Midmark Teammates also participated in two World Vision mission trips to Appalachia in 2017.

“World Vision is our number one NGO partnership. Over the past nine years, we’ve been able to donate more than 10,000 pieces of medical equipment to developing countries with less than adequate equipment,” said Mitch Eiting, global philanthropic and corporate giving manager.

Midmark is headquartered in Dayton, but the company will soon move to Austin Landing in Miamisburg.
