Do you know about MedWish?

As the result of an experience he had in Africa even before he became a doctor, Dr. Lee Ponsky started MedWish in his garage. Simply stated MedWish takes supplies that would normally be discarded, but are still of good quality and in good working condition, and sends them to third world countries where they are saving thousands and thousands of lives.

What a great idea and project.

I learned about it at the annual Project Love Rescuer of Humanity Awards

Some amazing people were honored.

Thanks for the shout-out, Dan! Yes, we're very proud of the work of Dr. Ponsky and MedWish International. Every day, we're rescuing some 1.5 TONS of medical surplus from ending up in our landfills, and in 2011 alone we shipped some 500,000 pounds to 57 different countries.

We welcome financial supporters, donations of medical supplies, volunteers, and more! Check us out at
