Directors Visit African Clinics

In August of this year, Compassion Tea Company co-founders Jack and Chris Faherty hand-delivered 250 lbs. of donated pharmaceuticals and medical supplies to clinics in South Africa. Both clinics, Lily of the Valley Medical Centre and 1000 Hills Community Helpers, have partnered with Compassion Tea Company’s parent organization, CompassioNow, for years. In an effort to “share tea, save lives,” Compassion Tea Company sells premium teas online and donates 100% of its after-tax profits to CompassioNow. Through the sale of tea and tea memberships and its innovative relationship with CompassioNow, Compassion Tea Company provides medical care to “the world’s least served.”
