A Box of Hope for Haiti
Keep medical supplies out of landfills and in underserved hospitals.
For more than fifty years, the hospital on Haiti's Île de la Gonâve has operated the remote island's first — and only — inpatient facility. Unfortunately, aging infrastructure and empty shelves prevent caregivers from administering proper, basic care for the island's 120,000 residents.
Hospitals in the United States, meanwhile, generate more than two million tons of medical waste each year, including unused and unexpired medical supplies and equipment. Strict medical rules and regulations often force hospitals to discard gauze, syringes, gloves and other consumables that have never even been opened.
MedShare recovers this surplus and redistributes it to underserved health facilities. By matching items according to each facility's individual need, MedShare ensures the supplies stay out of landfills and in the hands of caregivers.
You can help. Just $25 provides one box of hope packed full of unused medical necessities. These sterile supplies can help decrease infection rates and improve the quality of care, ultimately saving lives.
MedShare bridges the gap between surplus and need to improve healthcare and the environment in the United States and abroad.
