DV Medical Supply is a supplier of quality wholesale medical products and pharmaceuticals with headquarters in Gardena, California. Outside its everyday operations, DV Medical Supply supports ChildFund, a nonprofit organization that advocates for the protection of children’s wellbeing nationally and internationally. ChildFund initiatives include the Akibene Scholarship Program.
Seeking to remove the financial barriers to pursuing an education, the Akibene Scholarship Program benefits Gambian and Indonesian youth forced to drop out of high school due to financial strain. Scholarships cover a variety of educational expenses, ranging from tuition and school fees to books and materials. They also help students pay for housing and transportation to higher-level institutions. In addition, it grants students the necessary tools and skills to support their families and inspire others to use education as a pathway to success.
More than $11,000 in donations have been raised for the scholarship program since its launch. The program maintains a fundraising goal of $30,000.
