Reduce hospital waste. Give to Missions and Wildlife Sanctuaries.
Healthcare is the second-largest contributor to landfill after the food industry. One hospital can create more than 1500 tonnes of landfill waste each year.
A portion of health care waste includes unused surplus medical supplies and equipment. Instead of going to landfill, the Medical Pantry collect, sorts and stores these precious supplies.
We donate medical supplies to wild life sanctuaries and animal shelters
We donate medical supplies to disadvantaged communities through medical aid groups and religious missions
