Esperança is holding a summer drive to collect surgical equipment for our international programs and hygiene supplies for our domestic programs. This fall, Esperança will send an entire sea shipment container full of donated medical goods to their partners in Central and South America for use in their clinics and hospitals. We accept both expired and non-expired materials and supplies. However, we are not able to accept medications or liquids of any sort (i.e. saline, iodine solution, ointments, pre-filled syringes, etc.)For a complete list of medical items they are seeking, visit http://www.esperanca.org/donate-supplies/.
