East West Rescue (India) Strengthens Its Relationship With The International Assistance Group

  • East West Rescue (India) strengthens its relationship with the International Assistance Group.

International Assistance Group has created a new network model early 2012 aiming to expand the group further. The Partnership Program launched in January 2012 has been a great success. This unique assistance network relies on independent assistance companies and providers identified now as Core Partners, Assistance Partners and Preferred Providers. 21 additional companies joined the Partnership Program during the last twelve months, and contributed to the benefits of global assistance solutions. The last newcomer is the industry-reputed Indian company East West Rescue.

Today, Cecile Hermetz, General Manager of International Assistance Group, expresses her pride and happiness, "To have East West Rescue now being part of International Assistance Group - as Assistance Partner. The relationship established by some International Assistance Group partners with East West Rescue for more than 15 years and with International Assistance Group since 2007 has allowed to measure the knowledge and medical assistance capabilities of East West Rescue on the whole Indian continent and neighboring countries including Bangladesh, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Maldives and Pakistan. We most welcome East West Rescue in our ranks and see this partnership as a way to maximize further the quality of our services in India."
