Hydralyte’s Oral Rehydration Solutions will aid Operation USA in their ongoing commitment to support disaster relief globally
San Diego, CA (March 1, 2019) – Hydralyte, a clinically formulated oral rehydration solution (ORS), has donated 75,000 servings of electrolyte solutions and electrolyte powders to support and aid the efforts of Operation USA both domestically and internationally.
“Corporate partners make much of OpUSA’s work possible, and we are so grateful for the support of organizations like Hydralyte said Operation USA CEO & President, Richard Walden. “This generous gift will provide meaningful relief to disaster survivors at a time when it is needed most.”
During many natural disasters access to basic necessities, including clean water, is limited. In these instances, dehydration can be prevalent. By providing Hydralyte we can extend access of clinical hydration and help to prevent dehydration. Hydralyte’s material donation of its 250 mL ready-to-drink solutions will be housed at the OpUSA warehouse for when disaster strikes. In addition, Hydralyte’s electrolyte powders will support Operation USA’s ongoing community clinic programs in California.
“Through donations to organizations like Operation USA, we can help do our part in providing relief to people and communities in the form of hydration during some of the toughest times,” said Oliver Baker, CEO, Hydralyte. “All of our products prevent and manage dehydration and can be used in many disaster relief situations to offset the challenges and cost of intravenous therapy.”
Operation USA is a Los Angeles-based disaster relief agency delivering $400 million in aid to over 100 countries since 1979, with as much as 50% of our work being done in the United States. Every day, Operation USA strives to meet the needs of the most overlooked and under-served populations, so communities are empowered to thrive in the face of pervasive obstacles during a time of unprecedented need.
