Want to Give Medical Supplies?

Brilliant! GiveNow does not accept donations of medical supplies, but here in Other Ways to Give, we have compiled a list of organisations that do. Please contact the organisations below to arrange your giving.

Medical equipment is often desperately needed for international development programs but there are strict guidelines in place for what can and can’t be donated.

For example, medications of any sort cannot be donated or accepted as a donation – this is a directive of the World Health Organisation.

The Royal Australasian College of Surgeons accepts donations of surgical instruments and medical equipment. An itemised list of the donated goods must be sent to them before they can accept the donation and costs for freighting the donation to the college must be covered by the donor.
