Global health relief serving Typhoon Haiyan survivors

Christian Medical and Dental Association recently mobilized volunteer healthcare providers and secured resources from MedShare’s MedTeam Store that were used in the Philippines. This team worked with the Salvation Army about 30 miles south of Tacloban in communities around Dulag (Duloge). They were able to treat between 50 and 100 patients daily, and provided basic medical care, and dental care. Nurses from the health department worked alongside volunteers and provided vaccinations to children in need. Clinics were set up in school rooms and churches that had been damaged in the Super Typhoon. Thanks to out corporate sponsors: Clif Bar, UPS, Ventas, Inc., and MedAssets, we were able to provide the necessary medical supplies for this mission trip.

Please view the photos below of the beautiful children they were able to treat!

Today is International Volunteer Day!

This day of celebration offers an opportunity for organizations like MedShare to lift up the impact that volunteers make in our local and global communities. Nearly 20,000 individuals spend time at MedShare’s San Leandro and Atlanta distribution centers each year. Our dedicated volunteers invest their time to sort 15,000 of pounds of surplus medical supplies that have been diverted from local landfills every week. This perfectly usable product is used to treat recipients in need of healthcare in 95 countries throughout the world.

Today and every day, we thank our volunteers for helping us build healthy communities locally and globally.
