Established in 1978, DV Medical Supply has consistently supplied the medical profession with cost-effective medical, surgical, and pharmaceutical equipment. Big on corporate social responsibility, DV Medical Supply supports Child Fund.

Child Fund is an organization that is focused on protecting children all over the world from physical or emotional abuse, neglect, sexual violence, and exploitation.

The organization’s approach to child protection sees children and the environment as a set of rings with children at the very center. The first ring represents the family of the child, the second ring symbolizes the surrounding community, the third ring stands for local institutions, the fourth ring denotes national institutions, and finally the last ring represents international institutions. All of these play a fundamental role in keeping children safe and protected.
With a firm belief that each environmental support, or ring, strengthens the other, Child Fund targets each of these institutions, advocating for the protection of children. The organization helps children understand their rights and the law, empowering them so they are their own advocates. Child Fund then strengthens families through social and economic programs aimed at building stability.

Child Fund entrenches child protection in communities through supporting child protection committees, and educating mothers and teachers on how to make use of local institutions tasked with preventing child abuse.

Child Fund works with leaders at the national level, advocating for children’s interests as enshrined in international treaties while at the same time supporting international policy changes aimed at protecting children.
