Global Links is one of my favorite nonprofits. They excel at three different things: (1) working with local health centers to retrieve appropriate furnishings, supplies, and equipment and divert them from landfills; (2) working volunteers from a variety of backgrounds and educating them on their mission; (3) working closely with overseas health centers to identify their specific needs and capabilities and sending them only what they need and ensuring it will be properly used and maintained.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
committed to Global Links' mission and to working closely with volunteers to ensure they had a meaningful experience.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Work in so many more countries, diverting even more medical supplies from landfills to be put to meaningful use in health care facilities overseas.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Volunteer & I've helped organize fundraisers in the past.
