We seize areas of opportunities so we can best serve the community. For example, we donated several boxes of medicine for malaria, typhoid fever, dysentery to hospital in Africa.
In addition, we partner with medical communities nationally and internationally that are willing to physically work alongside with us to do medical and dental outreaches such as Hand of Hope-JMM.
During these events the team of medical and dental professionals also provide training to local medical and dental school students that participate. Students are always grateful to have hands- on- training.
Hospitals discard an estimated $6.5 billion of medical supplies and equipment each year, much of which is useable surplus that could save lives. Because of technological changes, regulatory requirements, production overages and procedural excess, the surplus is sent to landfills.
According to the World Health Organization, more than 10 million children under the age of 5 die each year in the developing world, due to inadequate medical care. Potentially lifesaving surgeries are canceled because there are no sutures.
We step in and recycle the equipment and supplies, then we ship them to hospitals in need in developing nations. Ask how you can help.
