SBC Cleveland- MedWish International

On August 17, 2011, the students of Sanford Brown College had the opportunity to work with MedWish International earlier this month. They sorted through medical supplies and helped prepare shipments to be distributed around the world.

MedWish International provides donated medical supplies to individuals and organizations dedicated to providing care that directly lessens the burden of suffering people in under-served areas regardless of religious or political affiliation. Medical supplies and equipment provided by MedWish International may not be sold.

“We take great pride in our accomplishments, but we are humbled by the insignificance of our service relative to the magnitude of need, and the enormity of our organization’s potential.”

MedWish International is a non-profit organization committed to the recovery and recycling of donated medical supplies area healthcare providers must discard. These life-saving supplies are made available to those providing medical care in developing countries throughout the world. Globally, the MedWish International program improves the quality of medical care available to the underserved around the world; locally, we are effectively reducing the amount of solid waste deposited in landfills. MedWish International also serves as a resource for local health-care professionals and charitable organizations interested in global health.

For more information, contact Christine Laudato, Director of Community and Alumni Outreach, at 440-202-3246 or claudato@sbc-cleveland.com.
