Target demographics: MedShare is committed to serving three distinct groups:
1. Needy hospitals in the developing world.
2. Northern CA clinics providing care to the underserved
3. Hundreds of medical teams that travel around the globe on medical missions.

Direct beneficiaries per year: Many thousands of patients are helped each year due to our work.

Geographic areas served: Northern CA Safety Net Clinics and Hospitals in 82 Developing Nations

Mission:
MedShare delivers health and hope to people in Northern CA and around the world. We collect surplus medical supplies and equipment and then ship to hospitals and clinics to help save lives - and to bring dignity and hope to the poorest of the poor.

With our environmental focus we divert the donated medical supplies out of Northern CA landfills by collecting the surplus directly from local hospitals.

Our Distribution and Volunteer Center is conveniently located in San Leandro and are in need of nice people to help us at 3-hour sorting sessions throughout the week.

Won't you join us in this important work by volunteering? We invite individuals, groups, schools, and corporations to sorting sessions where you'll package supplies to save lives around the globe! No special skills are needed - just a willingness to want to change the world - one life at a time.

We shipped an amazing 103 40-foot containers of medical supplies last year; MedShare is rated by Charity Navigator as a Top 10 charity.

Help us grow!
Results:
Last year we shipped 103 containers of aid to hospitals in the economically developing world. We also provisioned over 330 medical teams who traveled the globe to bring immediate health care to the poor.
