You shipped equipment and mobilized kids
In April we asked you to help us ship millions of dollars’ worth of ability-restoring equipment to help children like Edirne and their families who are living in poverty with disability.
20 containers were shipped to our waiting, trusted partners in Cameroon, DRC, Ethiopia, Malawi, Rwanda, Swaziland, and Zambia. The total value of the medical goods was $11 million including 303 hospital beds, 347 wheelchairs, and 15,653 orthopedic and prosthetic devices.
You showed families like Edrine’s that you care!
Your donated items will bring help and hope to people in the poorest communities of the world.
Do you work for or know of an organization, business or medical facility that has unused medical supplies or gently used hospital equipment? Perhaps you or a family member have assistive devices you no longer need – such as a wheelchair, cane, crutches, braces or orthoses? Through cbm‘s gift-in-kind program, these items can be re-used by our local partners in Africa and Latin America to transform the lives of moms, dads and children living in poverty with disability.
