World Medical Relief collects and distributes recycled medical and dental equipment, medical supplies, laboratory instruments and medicines to developing nations. These items are donated to World Medical Relief and intended to aid the less fortunate sick and poor around the world.
Sponsoring organizations such as churches, service groups and medical missionaries may apply for assistance through an application process. Supplies and equipment are either shipped via forty-foot containers or hand-carried by medical missionaries. Even though the content of the container, worth several hundred thousand dollars, is donated, there are handling and shipping charges, notwithstanding other surcharges and taxes that may be imposed by the recipient country, which surcharges are beyond our control. All shipments must be received by licensed medical facilities or personnel at their point of destination.
Please complete Application A for a container shipment. This form also includes a list of commonly available items. Please complete Application B for a medical mission.
Please make sure to complete all appropriate forms and submit them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In 2017, 58 forty-foot containers were sent to many countries including (but not limited to) Haiti, Tanzania, Somalia, Kenya, Philippines, Guatemala, El Salvador, Turkey, Lebanon, Ethiopia, Nigeria. Sierra Leone, etc. – with several countries requesting more than one container. Three mission teams were supplied with medicines, medical instruments, and supplies. The value of items included in these shipments was $ 26,694,114. The weight of the shipments was just shy of 800,000 pounds. It is to be noted that these items are donated to World Medical Relief and would more than likely end up in landfill had they not come to us.
