Having traveled the world throughout my career, I have seen the need first hand. Medical Bridges mission of connecting those who have with those who don't is obvious and very needed. We keep surplus materials out of landfills in the US and put them in the hands of needy organizations world wide. The staff at MB is truly committed to this mission.

Here's expressing our heartfelt gratitude to Medical Bridges for making our endeavor doubly successful and strong! Deltawomen's drive to donate medical supplies to the flood displaced people of Delta State, Nigeria would have been incomplete were it nor for Medical Bridges!

I have served on many nonprofit boards, but Medical Bridges has one of the most committed boards that I have encountered with time, talent and financial contributions. Aligned with the dedicated staff and volunteers, everyone works to obtain donated quality medical supplies and equipment and send them to requesting nonprofit health providers in developing countries. The nonprofit clients of Medical Bridges select the items needed from inventory, which means they get what they want and need, and they have the comfort of knowing that Medical Bridges sends in-date supplies and working equipment with access to manuals for operation/maintenance. Unfortunately not all medical suppply recovery organizations send what the clients want and some also send broken or unusable items thus transferring medical equipment and supply waste to developing countries. Instead, Medical Bridges is committed to helping with selected medical supplies and equipment, and is committed to environmental zero waste in its repurpose and reuse. From USA medical and dental surplus, others can have lifesaving and lifechanging opportunities.

Medical Bridges actually made the critical difference in adequately equipping the newly established Babcock University Teaching Hospital, Ilishan-Remo, Nigeria in her efforts at raising the healthcare standards in the country and entire West African sub-region. MB gives personalized service tailored to meet your real needs rather than just throw things at you which are neither needed nor serviceable. They follow up on their shipments and demand strict accountability. We received twenty (20) forty-foot containers of top grade equipment within a twelve month period and they are extending this to other sister institutions in South America and Asia.

Medical Bridges gathers surplus and donated medical equipment, supplies and meds in the Houston, Texas area. Our non-profit, Agape In Action, Inc. has called on them numerous times to help provision medical missionary teams sent to Haiti and Guatemala. They have always provided a lot of what is needed for a nominal fee. We love to work with this organization.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

sending medical relief supplies to Haiti after the earthquake in 1/2020, and providing much needed medical supplies for medical missions teams going to Haiti and Guatemela.
