Where can I find free medical supplies?

Original message posted by Joshua Jones on 05-11-04.

We take medical teams into South America to do medical outreaches. Can anyone suggest any good sources for finding medicine donations?

Reply by Stacy Parrish on 05-25-04.

Don't forget about all of Wal-Mart's vendors here in northwest Arkansas. Vendors give away their merchandise all of the time. A vendor that comes to mind is Proctor and Gamble. They have donated thousands of supplies to XA. Ronnie Hoover's wife works there and is a great connection. Several of the places just need to be given a phone call. Let me know what I can do to help. Another thing is a local hospital here in town is also building a new facility. I am not sure if they will abandon the old supplies or auction them, but it would be worth checking into. The hospital is St. Mary's in Rogers, AR--Mercy Health Systems.

Stacy,
Thanks for the info! I will definitely be following up on that. We are always looking for old medical supplies for our warehouse. We store them there and include them in future shipments to Latin America. The hospitals down there are always in need of stuff we consider old!

Blessings,
Josh

Many times if you know a doctor, they get a lot of sample medicines, and they might be able to put together some supplies for your trip.

Reply by Christina on 06-26-04.

You could also make a very specific list of medicines needed and put it in your church bulletin for anyone who might want to contribute.

Network with the central supply departments at local hospitals. They throw out a tremendous amount of items that are expired or due to a change in vendors. I have some supplies that I would be willing to trade if you are interested. I also have complied a huge list of companies that have websites where I can order items. My husband and I are medical missionaries to Mexico.

Reply by Sharon Hattaway on 09-20-04.

My husband is working with an organization called "Mission Aid". They receive donated medical materials and then find missionaries who need what has been donated. If you are intersted, please email my husband at the email address above. If you put "mission aid" as the topic, you will receive a reply from him.

Mission Aid has had to close.

I do medical missions to Nicaragua every year. Our team is able to get a huge amount of donated medicine and supplies, from both pharmaceutical companies and also from stores like Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, etc. The stores will be happy to donate OTC's and Vitamins if you give them a letter stating your cause. The prescriptions you can get from dr.'s offices and by writing letters to pharmaceutical companies. There are often organizations that collect donations of medicine and then redistribute them to missions groups. But prayer is the best way of getting anything done - God always comes through for us in a big way.

I am a Registered Nurse and have never worked a hospital or facility who didn't keep a box just for medical missions. Sometimes, these full boxes don't have anywhere to go and are looking for someone to give them too. If still interested, I would be happy to coordinate a medical mission supply in my area as a volunteer, as there are so many hospitals that are required to throw away good useable things simply because of OSHA standards. Please reply to my email address. This would be a delight for me to do!

Reply by Carriann Cole on 07-06-05.

Am not certain if previous message went through as I was not logged in. But if you would like a volunteer in the Houston area to gather those good but throw-away supplies that most hospitals and clinics are willing to donate to missions, I would be delighted in doing this for you! I am an RN and have watched this take place for 15 years. I can't leave the country but I could do this!!! What a blessing this would be to become a part of!

Reply by Keith Jones on 08-01-05.

Equipping The Saints networks with a number of ministries that provide medical equipment and supplies. Some items are donated. Others are available at a low cost. We would be happy to share our contacts with any evangelical ministry. Our email is ets@rica.net.

Dear Fellow Missionaries, I am surprised that no one has mentioned International Aid in Spring Lake, Michigan. This place is awesome. I have been there several times and have loaded up on supplies. They not only have medical supplies and equipment, but a lot of other stuff too. It is well worth going out of your way to get to. They also will ship directly to you, but it is worth it to go there if you can as they often have a lot of stuff that is not in their catalog. Here is their website: www.internationalaid.gospelcom.net Let me know if this tip has helped anyone! God Bless
