This week on Tuesday November 19, volunteers, staff, and guests gathered at MedShare’s Western Region to send off a container of medical supplies to Shirati KMT Hospital in Tanzania. This was a very special occasion for MedShare’s Western Region volunteers who not only sorted and boxed the supplies going on the container but also raised the $22,000 sponsorship fee for the container. Every container that MedShare ships must have a financial sponsor to cover the costs associated with preparing and shipping the container, so that it can be shipped free of charge to the recipient hospital. These volunteers worked hard over the summer to raise the funds. They organized a silent auction, arranged a 5K walk, and donated their many talents to make this fundraiser a success.
We are very grateful to the thousands of volunteers who give their time to MedShare every year, and we are especially proud of the remarkable effort made by these volunteers.
Thank you! We wish the container a safe and speedy journey to Tanzania!

Wind gusts of more than 200 miles per hour and forty-five foot waves have taken the lives of thousands of Filipinos. Super Typhoon Haiyan is among the strongest storms in history and has destroyed homes, businesses and roads throughout the country.
When disasters like Typhoon Haiyan strike, MedShare responds, and you can help us do so by donating to our Urgent Humanitarian Relief Program. It takes valuable resources to divert medical surplus from being wasted in local landfills – human capital, hard assets like trucks and gasoline, and financial investment. Please donate now so that life-saving supplies may be directly deployed to hospitals and clinics in the Phillippines today!
Your financial support makes it possible for MedShare to remain nimble and responsive to recipients just like those impacted from Typhoon Haiyan, who are in need of urgent healthcare delivery. You can help by donating here to our Typhoon Haiyan Humanitarian Relief Program.
Proceeds from MedShare’s first annual Sustainable Social support the shipment of valuable containers of medical supplies to communities that lack access to healthcare delivery. This benefit also helps us support a tremendous training program that teaches thousands of people how to use medical equipment that makes a lasting impact on patient treatment and recovery all over the world. Supporters make it possible for us to provide impactful opportunities for community volunteers to sort and distribute the medical surplus that would have been wasted in local landfills.
The wonderful folks at Triage Consulting Group helped make this night a tremendous success. Also a huge thank you to Reptar for playing at the event, and Jason Travis for photographing! We are so appreciative of everyone who came out to share the good with MedShare! Please view photos from the Sustainable Social below.
Below is a beautiful thank-you card sent to us from our recipients at Hospital Dadeldhura in Nepal. This container was shipped from MedShare’s Western distribution center on 10/30/2012. We are honored to have been able to support this hospital in its humanitarian work with the provision of donated supplies and equipment from our outstanding partners. It was a joy to see everyone’s smiling faces on this card, and hope you enjoy it as well! Thank you to Human Development and Community Services for sponsoring this shipment!
It was a pleasure to work with the Be Rich campaign at North Point Ministries to send a 40-foot container of medical aid to Honduras with Honduras Outreach, Inc. Please take a moment to view this amazing video of our supplies going to work!
On July 1, 2013 MedShare began its 15th year bridging the gap between surplus and need. Looking back, we are amazed that more than 950 containers of medical supplies have been shipped to 95 countries. We could not have achieved this milestone without the support of individuals like you who also value building healthy communities locally and globally.
To ensure the next 15 years are as successful, MedShare invites you to join our inaugural class of the 1998 Society. An anniversary gift of $1998 will allow MedShare to ship more supplies as well as support our MedTeam Stores, which are a valuable resource for local free clinics and medical mission teams that provide healthcare globally.
To become a member of the MedShare 1998 Society, please contact Kimberly Alexander at email@example.com or 404-537-5080. We look forward to working alongside you for the next 15 years!
