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.

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.
