MedEarth is working to save lives and the environment by bridging the gap between our surplus and the scarcity of others.   This is achieved by redirecting usable medical supplies and equipment destined for local landfills and redistributing these vital resources to those in desperate need of them in communities struggling for access to basic health care. Since 2013, MedEarth has recovered over 750 cubic meters of usable medical surplus from more than 20 hospitals in Australia. As part of our work, MedEarth has filled containers with 50 tons of life saving medical supplies and equipment worth over $1.5 million going to 10 countries and impacting thousands of lives.
