Project C.U.R.E. was founded in 1987 to help bridge staggering health resource gaps in the developing world by matching valuable medical surplus with healthcare facilities in resource-limited communities. Project C.U.R.E. operates distribution centers in Colorado, Tennessee, Texas and Arizona and collects excess supplies and functioning equipment from hundreds of U.S. hospitals and medical manufacturers, giving them the opportunity to “green” their operations and redirect their surplus in an environmentally-friendly way. Thanks to the dedication of 16,000 volunteers nationwide, two to three cargo containers of life-saving aid leave Project C.U.R.E.’s warehouses every week. In addition, Project C.U.R.E. sends volunteer medical teams to underserved facilities abroad to provide free care and train local healthcare staff. Today, Project C.U.R.E. is the world’s largest medical supply recovery organization, touching the lives of patients, families and children in more than 130 countries.
