The Blessings Distinction

What is it that causes medical professionals and missionaries alike to put their trust in Blessings International? Here are eight reasons straight from our partners’ mouths:

  1. Personal touches

“We would like to commend Blessings and the staff for the great customer service and personalized attention we have always received.” ~Anonymous survey participant

We believe service should be individualized, and so we work hard to maintain personal touches and connection. For example, when you call Blessings International, you won’t talk to an automated system and punch a dozen numbers before reaching a human.


  1. Dedicated service

“Ever since being put into contact with Blessings, we have felt nothing but support…. We have received excellent service.” ~Azeria T., Hearing the Little Heartbeats

From answering phones to packing orders, our day-to-day work is our ministry. When we wholeheartedly serve our partners, we are helping them save lives and share the gospel. As such, it is our goal to be attentive and to go the extra mile, making sure our partners’ needs are met to the best of our ability.


  1. Consistent supply

“Blessings International makes [our] ongoing work possible by keeping affordable medications available for these folks who have a very difficult time accessing healthcare due to their incredible poverty.” ~Ron H., Haiti Foundation Against Poverty

Because we maintain a consistent supply with established manufacturers, our formularies (whether for international or US clinic orders) stay stable, allowing our partners to rely on the same products year after year.


  1. Long expiration dates

“The long expiration dates allow us to carry the medication into Panama for every trip and gain approval from the Panamanian Ministry of Health, allowing us to move forward in our missional partnership.” ~Anonymous survey participant

Routinely receiving stock from our manufactures allows us to maintain longer expiration dates on our products.


  1. Product integrity

“We could not do what we do without Blessings!  The medicines are of high quality, and because they are so reasonably priced, we are able to take an abundance.” ~Dr. Greg W., Truth for Today Medical Missions

We stock only high-quality products, many of which are from manufacturers we’ve personally inspected. We believe quality is not just a material standard, but an eternal legacy.

In CEO Barry Ewy’s words, “I can’t think of anything more detrimental when presenting the Gospel on a medical mission trip than to give away medicines that are sub-quality or even harmful. Our work is more than supplying life-giving medicines; it’s also about providing tools for missionaries to share the Gospel.”


  1. Thorough licensure

“I am glad you have expanded the number of states [you can ship medicines into.]” ~Anonymous survey participant

We have worked hard to secure the ability to ship pharmaceuticals into 48 states and the District of Columbia. We want to do our part to protect the licenses of those who partner with us, and so we work to assure full compliance with state and federal requirements.


  1. Free shipping

“When we learned of your international shipping service, we started purchasing nearly all of our medicines from Blessings. Working with your colleagues at Blessings has made our entire pharmaceutical ordering process much more efficient and easier for us.” ~Frank B., Somos Amigos Medical Missions

Because many of those we partner with are giving away the items they purchase from us, we want to do our part to make sure their budget is used for medical missions. That’s why we offer free shipping on all standard orders within the United States, and why we offer free export shipping on any order over $1,500.


  1. Conscientious donation processing

“The generosity of your organization continues to astound us!” ~Linda E., Casa Colibri

When donors give to our organization, they know every cent of their donation is going toward the causes they care about. Yes, we still have administrative costs, but we make sure those are never covered by our donors.
