I have been associated with this organizations for many years and have continually appreciated their creative and valuable approach to the "repurposing" of surplus medical supplies. As a healthcare professional myself, I have often been appalled- witnessing the waste of expensive and still useful medical supplies and equipment. Finally someone ( Global Links) came along and created a way to redirect these items for the good of less advantaged people. Global Links functions on a very tight budget, with most of the work being done by volunteers. When people make a donation to them they can be assured that almost 100% of it is being used directly by those who need it the most. Global Links is truely dedicated to its mission.

I have been working with Global Links for over 10 years and I am extremely impressed with their commitment to help those in need here in our community as well as overseas. My office is the hub for donations from fellow colleagues, patients and friends. We are not only helping the planet by responsibly getting rid of unused equipment and devices, but we are donating these things to an organization whose sole mission is to help those in need. Global Links is structured and organized, dedicated and sincere in reaching the poorest of poor to give them a more meaningful life. As a donor organization, it fills us with pride that we are doing the right thing. Thank you Global Links!

As a volunteer at Global Links, I see first hand the items that are to se sent to needy clinics and I am overjoyed to be a part of this organization. Global Links is not only helping environmentally, but more importantly, it is making a positive impact on the lives of many individuals who are dying for things that most of us take for granted. Global Links staff are always energetic and positive. I love being part of one of the best non-profit orgainization this side of the Mississippi!

Global Links recycles surplus medical supplies and devices that would otherwise be discarded in landfills or incinerated. They send these items to clinics and facilities in developing countries that would otherwise be unable to care for needy people. I have volunteered at Global Links for three years and I am always impressed by the generosity and caring that the people at Global Links display toward the humankind and the environment.

Global Links is the most wonderful organization! Here medical equipment goes back into the cycle which would otherwise fill landfills. Global Links also reuses and recycles in every thinkable way during the process of packaging and shipping the items to countries who are in desperate need. What an outstanding contribution to humanity and our environment!

Global Links is a pioneer in its approach to both environmental stewardship and development assistance. Every year, the organization makes a measurable, direct and immediate impact in the lives of thousands of our world's poorest - and it does so using materials that would otherwise be thrown away in U.S. landfills. I have worked with few other organizations that have such a profound sense of their responsibility both at home and abroad and such an enduring commitment to protecting both our planet and the people on it.

I am absolutely impressed with Global Links' ability to be truly resourceful in simultaneously addressing the problem of excess/waste from the hospital/pharmaceutical end and the problem of lack of medical equipment and supplies in the third world due to economic and infrastructural disadvantage. It is not only an ingenious environmentally-friendly organization that recycles what could become waste, but one that also quietly and effectively fights for human rights on a global level in terms of equal access to quality health care.

What I have seen exhibited at Global Links more than other organizations I've volunteered or worked for is a true commitment to reducing waste to an absolute minimum. Whether it is re-purposing and re-directing perfectly good medical supplies to its constituents, or simply performing its own internal day-to-day activities, Global Links keeps a reduced footprint at the forefront of its operational objectives.
