I volunteered 2 hours with Project C.U.R.E in their warehouse. I was overwhelmed with just how full the warehouse is of medical supplies! I know I was helping to make a difference around the world by giving two hours of my saturday to help sort medical donations.

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

I was able to help sort through donations and know that soon those supplies would be in the hands of doctors and nurses who desperately need them.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Let more volunteers know about how much time it take so sort through all the donations they recieve.

While working as an intern at Project C.U.R.E., I was able to make an impact globally while still living and working domestically. I really felt my time here was well spent, and that my efforts directly contributed to the overall success and mission of the organization. The people who work at Project C.U.R.E. are hardworking, dedicated, and overall amazing people to be surrounded by on a daily basis.

The work this organization does is not only noble, but extremely important in helping alleviate problems of inadequate health care in developing countries. In my opinion, what sets Project C.U.R.E. apart from other international aid organizations is the method by which supplies are delivered. Unlike other organizations, Project C.U.R.E. ensures that only necessary and relevant medical supplies are delivered to a clinic site after a thorough, first hand assessment of the recipient institution. This means donated medical supplies are used as intended without the waste or fear of fund siphoning that can occur with generic monetary donations. Personally, I feel Project C.U.R.E. could serve as a template for similar organizations about how to maximize impact in the lives of others while minimizing the room for waste and error.

I am just finishing up a 10 week internship with PROJECT C.U.R.E. I was interested in this organization because of the unique way they combine green practices (reducing medical waste) and global healthcare. The staff here is welcoming, motivated and hard working. Everyone seems to work towards the same goal: Delivering life-giving medical supplies and equipment to resource-starved hospitals and clinics.
I really respect the process that they follow before they even ship the supplies over. Each clinic or hospital that request supplies is first evaluated by a volunteer, who travels to that hospital or clinic to see first-hand what the needs are. Then a report if filled and the needs are matched in the best way we can based on the supplies in the different warehouses. I appreciate that PROJECT C.U.R.E tries its best to be the best stewards with the resources they have been given.
I also LOVE the fact that with PROJECT C.U.R.E you really can "track" where your donation goes to. They always have several large containers headed to various countries around the world that you can pledge your money to.

I have been donating money to supply the C.U.R.E Kits to groups I know will be traveling overseas soon. With a $150.00 donation they will be able to check a second "bag" (really its a box) full of $1,500 worth of medical supplies to then take to a local hospital or clinic that needs it.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Try to let more individuals know how easy it can be to get life-saving medical supplies to the overseas professionals and communities that desperately need them.

I have learned some fund raising techniques and I have also learned so much about global healthcare and the issue of the American medial community and how many perfectly good supplies and equipment ends up in our landfills. I also really enjoyed getting to know the staff and fellow volunteers from all different walks of life.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

I really enjoyed the impact I could see I was making with the organization. I could see the C.U.R.E Kits I picked up and took to friends for their overseas trips. I felt good that my donation seemed to go so far thanks to PROJECT C.U.R.E!
