Today, it is estimated that the United States medical community generates nearly $9 billion of surplus product every year simply because the materials have been opened but never used or the items are outdated by U.S. standards and are replaced by the newest available technology. At the same time, countries all over the world are in urgent need of medical equipment and supplies.
You can help close this health care gap. Donate to help procure medical and surgical supplies and equipment — crutches, wheelchairs, scalpels, syringes, gloves, antibiotics, beds, exam tables, and more to 16 countries in Africa and others in the developing world.
Countries receiving more health aid witnessed a more rapid rise in life expectancy and saw measurably larger declines in mortality among children.
I support this charity because of my recent volunteer work in Africa and witnessing the lack of quality medical care for a number of African communities.
