unexpired diabetes supplies are gratefully accepted for
Mission Hospitals in Malawi, Africa.
Around 2003, I was made aware that I was in position to help destitute and dying people with diabetes in Malawi, Africa and other 3rd world countries. Through affiliation with the Pittsbrugh Presbytery and contacts in Malawi, and guests from Malawi who attended Diabetes Camp in the summer, I became aware of the enormous problem of lack of supplies and care there. Our surplus in the US can save lives elsewhere. Parents, educators and others through local and national contacts often asked what they could do with unneeded, unused, unexpired strips, meters, lancets, syringes, and even insulin.
Since that time, I have been sending suitcases full of donated supplies, that are hand-carried to Malawi (and other 3rd world countries in emergency situations like Katrina or Tsunami). I have also been working to assist efforts in diabetes education there with professionals from the University of Pittsburgh.
If you have supplies you can donate, they would be gratefully received. Shipments are made approximately quarterly.
If you have supplies to donate, please
