Review for Global Links, Pittsburgh, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Before I retired from the University of Pittsburgh twelve years ago, I helped recruited staff members to join a small group of volunteers on a regular basis to sort medicals supplies. I moved to NC and have kept in touch via newsletters and emails and watched the growth of this remarkable organization. I regularly make a contribution whenever I can to support their continued success. It is amazing how other states have asked for their assistance and advice in setting up such an organization. I have fond memories of my physical support while living in Pittsburgh. L. Butera

Review for Global Links, Pittsburgh, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I'm a University of Pittsburgh retiree(25 yrs. in international depts.) now residing in NC and make a donation when I can afford it. When I lived in Pittsburgh, I regularly volunteered to sort medical supplies with a group organized by Pitt. My experience with global links has always been a positive one and I am happy to see that the organization keeps growing and reaching out to meet as manyinternational clinics and hospitals with the medical supplies that are desperately needed. Even though I can't be active as a volunteer, global links keeps me informed of their current needs and progress. I can't think of an originally grass roots Pgh. group that deserves recognition more. Good luck to future successes

Review for Global Links, Pittsburgh, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Years ago I served as a volunteer with a group from University of Pittsburgh on a monthly basis. Since I am retired and have moved to a different state, I can not serve as a volunteer, but help by making a monetary donation for the suture program.

When I read the stories in the global link newsletter, I realize the importance of sutures that make surgery possible for unfortunate people. I know that every dollar of my contribution is put toward aid with a very small percentage toward the operation of global links.

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

for many years when I worked at the University of Pittsburgh and experienced a dedicated group that ran global links

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

only like to see other hospitals throughout the United States made aware of what a difference can be made in keeping unused medical supplies out of the landfills while aiding clinics in other countries. Global Links is first rate and achieving two goals at one time.
