Community Response

For more than 25 years, MedWish International has provided medical supplies and equipment to desperately underserved communities throughout the world. Based in Cleveland, MedWish has benefited from the generosity of the world-class medical institutions of Northeast Ohio. Now, during the global health crisis presented by COVID-19, MedWish is stepping up to give back to the local health care community.

Essential equipment to protect front-line health care workers in our community is in critically short supply amid the outbreak. MedWish is working closely with local health care and county leaders to support these teams by providing donations of masks, gowns, goggles, face shields, respiratory supplies, and hygiene supplies.

How Can You Help?

 

Donate Supplies

To best comply with the recent stay-at-home order from Governor DeWine, we are suspending pick ups and drop offs of any materials EXCEPT FOR personal protective equipment (gloves, masks, gowns, etc) and respiratory supplies. Donations of these critical supplies can still be dropped off at MedWish’s warehouse (1625 E. 31st St. Cleveland) Tuesday-Friday from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm. To minimize contact, please only drop-off supplies in the designated donation areas.

Large donations of critical need supplies can be coordinated with Tony Monaco at tmonaco@medwish.org. We ask that all other donations are held until further notice. Thank you for your support and understanding as we navigate this unprecedented challenge.
