MedPLUS and MedWish have a long partnership relationship, dating back to 2007 when Lauren and Emma hand-carried their first delivery of medical supplies to rural northern Ghana. Both organizations have grown considerably since then, and MedWish has collected close to 200,000 pounds of medical supplies for MedPLUS and helped us ship numerous 40-foot containers.
The mission of MedWish is to recover and recycle donated medical supplies area hospital providers must discard. Every year, MedWish clears out their Cleveland, Ohio warehouse to make room for their Band Aid Bash, a party where they raise money to support their operations. Interested? The party this year is on April 28th and you can learn more here: http://medwish.org/2012-band-aid-bash-party-for-the-planet/
A MedPLUS shipment with a surgical focus destined for northern Ghana will leave MedWish on April 12, and will be their last freight load out before this year’s Band Aid Bash. MedPLUS would like to send a big thank you to MedWish- we couldn’t do what we do without you!
