Delivery of Supplies
Some supplies are taken by UNC staff and students, churches, and nonprofit organizations doing medical mission trips.
Other supplies are sent to clinics and hospitals through our partnership with Project C.U.R.E, a larger medical supply recovery organization based in Denver, Colorado. Project C.U.R.E. has five distribution centers across the United States. MEDworld donations from are sent to the Project C.U.R.E. center in Nashville, Tennessee, and then shipped abroad to people in need.
