I recently traveled to Honduras with a group of 20 other medical personnel to provide care in a rural village. We left with numerous supplies from Global Links including gloves, gauze, lancets to name a few. Global Links was very willing to provide everything we had requested for our trip and gathered our supplies so quickly. We were able to use these supplies as part of our Child Health Initiative to improve preventive care with the children in San Jose El Negrito and surrounding areas. We make these trips twice annually and have enough remaining supplies to help us provide care for our next visit. I really enjoyed working with Global Links as everyone was so friendly and accommodating and hope we can work together for future trips.

Global Links is one of the best run nonprofits that I have ever worked with here and in the DC area. The Exec. Director stays so true to the mission and never strays from that no matter what. The work Global Links does makes so much sense in many ways - environmentally, medically, and humanly. The result is something that leaves a remarkably clear, profound impact of the countries that they serve as well as on the community from which they draw their "product."

Global links is TRULY a global non-profit, bring medical supplies to foreign countries that would only be thrown away here because they are the old models, and have been replaced. At this time in history, I believe this is a great need. We are defending many nations fights for freedom, and casualties are inevitable. Medical supplies from GLOBAL LINKS would be more than necessary - that would be critical!

Global Links is a nonprofit in Pittsburgh, PA that has turned recycling to an art form!

I have been aware of the organization for more than 10 years and am personally aware of the work they do in Latin American countries to refurbish durable medical supplies and equipment to countries most
in need.

Global Links staff assisted our organization in figuring out how to donate unused, unexpired HIV medications to the province of Matanzas, Republic of Cuba. Pittsburgh has a sister city relationship with Matanzas.

Because the rate of HIV/AIDS is so low in Cuba, our small organization was able to make an impact on the men and women living with HIV in Mantanzas and Global Links provided great guidance.

They are my favorite nonprofit and are willing to talk to hospitals around the world to provide assistance even if the hospitals are not in countries they they currently serve.

I found out about Globel Links thru NAPO. We collected items from the public to donate. That experience has stayed with me and I let everyone I know about their great work. It is awesome to know that they take the time and effort to help people that are in such great need. They have come up with creative ways to recycle that inspire not only adults but children as well. As a parent it gives me great hope knowing there are people willing to take the time to come up with solutions to what other wise would be wasted.

I am so proud to have an organization in Pittsburgh's back yard that touches so many parts of the world so profoundly. The humility of the Global Links organization coupled with its impact on the lives of the poor is such a strong reflection of Christ, that I believe His Spirit carries the organization. Their stewardship of all resources, dedication and effectivenss in continuing the mission despite impediments, and commitment to the "renewable" concept makes them the paragon environmental non-profit. Bravo Kathleen.

The Great!

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

Most directly in speaking with a physician from an impoverished South American country that benefited from Global Link's donation. His testimony to its impact and the corresponding presentation displayed a significant improvement in the lives of those living in that geographic area.

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

Hire their current Executive Director Kathleen Hower to do it as she has been since she founded the organization.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I have often described the Global Links participants as an ego-less group bent on achieving the mission. Unlike almost every non-profit that I have had board involvement, Global Link's directors checked their egos at the door.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Professionals, students, retirees, laborers, children... Every willing skill that wanted to participate, could.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Increase its distribution channels and warehouse, expand its geographic footprint to reach more donor hospitals and suppliers, and help an exponentially-more volume of persons around the world.

Ways to make it better...

I had more time to commit.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Funding to continue to grow, and the squeeze of reduced product and increased need.

One thing I'd also say is that...

This is such a wonderful organization. It is a well-run, deeply committed, and effective organization that impacts persons in places of dire medical need.

Global Links is unique in that it not only helps donors dispose of their "trash" responsibly, but it provides much needed medical equipment to underserved countries. "Green" is not just a slogan, but part of its mission.
