1. We receive the medicine and supplies from our corporate partners, donated to us for free.
2. We store the supplies in our warehouse. But “store” doesn’t begin to describe it. We log in and inventory all supplies, place them in temperature- and humidity-controlled containers and monitor everything for damage, temperature and expiration. We treat this cargo like the treasure it is.
3. We send the supplies to where they’re needed. But we don’t send them randomly. The medicine and medical supplies must be requested before we ship them. There has to be a proven need. And we send the supplies only to the facilities that ask for them, never to a general collection point.
What’s more, the clinics receiving the supplies have to demonstrate their ability to store and use them properly. They have to account for them at all times. Once the supplies are there, we follow up and monitor to make sure they were put to use.
We do all this so the medical supplies we send on your behalf do exactly what you intend — saves lives. “It’s great to send a million dollars of medicine and equipment somewhere, but if it can’t be used properly, it’s useless for helping people,” said Chuck Clark, Project HOPE’s Distribution Manager. “We go the extra mile to ensure that every Project HOPE donor knows we’re honoring their generosity to the fullest extent — and multiplying their generosity every time.”
