Medical Equipment believes in giving back. That's why we support Globus
Relief, a non-profit organization dedicated to distributing medical
supplies and medical equipment to charity programs around the world. We

gently-used equipment to Globus Relief! Please click the following link to see their latest and extremely powerful Impact Review:
2015 Year in Review.
Globus Relief gathers surplus medical supplies & medical equipment
from hospitals, private practices, distributors and manufacturers. They
make the donation process easy and provides detailed reporting so donors
can receive tax benefits for their contributions.
Globus Relief staff and volunteers
test, sort, repair, and repackage items for shipment. This process saves
an estimated $15 million worth of useable supplies from being discarded
in landfills each year.
Supplies are shipped to a network of
300+ charity partners at work around the world. Each recipient charity
is carefully screened to ensure donations are used efficiently to meet
These charities operate hospitals, clinics, refugee camps, orphanages,
disaster relief, and community projects, and they need supplies to
fulfill their missions. In many nations, obtaining basic medical
supplies and medical equipment is extremely difficult, so doctors and
nurses resort to unsafe practices (re-using latex gloves or plastic
syringes) and many people go without healthcare. When put in the hands
of responsible charities, the basic items routinely discarded in the
American healthcare system can literally save lives.
Donated items are tracked from the
donor to the ultimate recipient, so you know how and where your
contribution was used to make a difference. We honor all donor
restrictions on product (ex: no distribution inside the US or certain
countries), and make a thorough report according to donors' needs.
Since 1996, Globus Relief has
distributed more than $175 million dollars worth of aid to more than 300
charities at work in more than 100 countries.
Thank you for your
consideration in helping Globus Relief and their charity partners
recycle medical equipment to bring relief to people in need around the
