Every year, hospitals throughout the United States toss away 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 and can still be safely used to help others.
MedShare recovers this surplus and redistributes it to underserved health facilities, such as hospitals in Haiti. By matching items according to each facility’s individual need, MedShare ensures the supplies stay out of landfills and in the hands of caregivers.
MedShare’s shipments of medical supplies and equipment have brought healing and the promise of better lives to more than 85 countries and countless patients. Their work in Haiti helps patients, including thousands of children, receive vital care:
A recent MedShare shipment benefited St. Damien Pediatric Hospital in Haiti. St. Damien’s provides free high-quality care for more than 80,000 patients each year.

Located in Kenya, the Anne K Taylor Fund hires rangers to help protect Africa’s precious wildlife, removing deadly snares from the Kenyan Bush.
