  • Project and organizational information to accurately describe the needs your requested items will be serving
  • Contact information for medical professional responsible for developing the wish list

  • Please review financial responsibilities and information about shipping and customs before completing the application.

Once you have gathered this information, you may proceed to the application. You will receive an email confirmation once your application is submitted. If you need technical assistance in completing the application, please email info@medwish.org or call 216.692.1685.

Repeat Requests

Returning partners who have worked with MedWish before may contact our staff directly to coordinate future shipments, though if significant time has lapsed or there are changes to your organization’s status or affiliations, we may request an updated application.


All applicants should permit ample time for order processing, at least:

  • 4 weeks for hand-carry supplies and
  • 8 weeks for freight shipments.

Expedited shipments will be considered on a case-by-case basis and may be assessed a rush fee of 25% of the total fee for service.


Through this program we intend to achieve sustained, lifesaving impact on health care in developing countries. Your feedback is essential to this process. It helps us improve our program and helps us secure funding and other support to ensure we can continue to provide shipments.

All recipients are required to report back to MedWish within 60 days of arrival of the shipment to its final destination. You can submit the feedback form online or download a PDF of the form and return it via email, mail or fax along with any photos, notes or other materials you wish to include. Please review it before submitting an application so you understand its requirements. MedWish reserves the right to deny future shipments if the recipient fails to provide feedback.
