About Us: Healthcare in many developing countries is a global crisis. The severe lack of healthcare disrupts social and economic stability in almost every developing nation. Disease causes nine-out-of-ten preventable deaths in developing nations among children and adults. Millions of children under the age of five die each year from preventable disease, and more than 70% of these deaths occur from pneumonia, diarrhea, measles, malaria and malnutrition.
Founded in 1987, Project C.U.R.E. (www.projectcure.org) is the largest organization in the world delivering nearly 200 forty-foot ocean freight cargo containers of donated medical supplies and equipment each year. Each project begins with an onsite Needs Assessment to ensure that Project C.U.R.E. delivers the correct items to the right people. Project C.U.R.E. has delivered medical relief in 133 countries. In addition, Project C.U.R.E. conducts C.U.R.E. Clinics, Helping Babies Breathe trainings, bio-technical trainings to approximately 300 hospitals and health clinics in 40 developing nations.
On average, the value of a Project C.U.R.E. Cargo container is worth $375,000. Project C.U.R.E. operates Distribution Centers in Denver, Phoenix, Houston, Nashville, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Kansas City where more than 20,000 volunteers sort thousands of non-perishable medical supplies and certify medical equipment for shipment abroad. Project C.U.R.E. also operates close to a dozen collection centers all across the country. Project C.U.R.E. receives both new and quality used medical items from hundreds of hospitals throughout the United States and medical manufacturers, such as Stryker, Medline, Medtronic, Kimberly-Clark, Steris, and Hill-Rom.
