Medical Relief


Each year hospitals in the U.S. discard literally tons of unused surgical supplies, in addition to replacing millions of dollars of medical equipment. With many in developing nations literally dying for lack of this same equipment and materials, FEDES undertakes bridging supply and demand in a not-for-profit venture.

Medical supplies, including many that we take for granted but are luxuries elsewhere - such as dialysis machines, and wheelchairs - are channeled to facilities offering care for Chile's poor, as well as distributed personally to the poor on an individual basis.
