Donation of Medical Supplies or Medications
Angel Wings International has a continual need for medical supplies and medications. We purchase a majority of the medications we use, however our medications and supplies are always in short supply. There are different ways you can donate medical materials. Many expedition volunteers purchase and/or solicit these supplies from their communities and bring them on their trip to Haiti. Licensed medical practitioners can also order medications and supplies through MAP International and/or various pharmaceutical companies.
Currently, we are running shipping containers into Haiti approximately once per month from Miami. If you are interested in donating supplies and are not joining us on a trip, please contact us. Click here.
Angel Wings International will also need a full-range of medical equipment and supplies for its new clinic and hospital in Jacmel. This facility is desperately needed to serve the Jacmel population-- even more so now that the one "hospital" in the area was completely destroyed in the earthquake of January 2010. The following is a list of items always in great need on our expeditions and in our clinic:
NOTE: Unfortunately, we cannot accept expired medications and/or supplies. These medications will not make it through customs! Thank you.
