Comments about “MEDICAL BRIDGES

  • I’ve volunteered here a few times. The first time you get instructions and watch a short video about Medical Bridges. Then you are given a box of random donations and you sort them. There are bins all around the room for needles, tubing, dressings, instruments, etc. You throw away anything that’s old or messed up. Sometimes you pack boxes for shipment and have to count the gloves or whatever that are going in the boxes. The room can be quiet because people are counting and paying attention to what they’re doing but you can always talk. The people who work there are nice and help if you have questions. I didn’t mind leaving after 2 hours bc it’s not really exciting but volunteers are definitely needed & I liked helping all those supplies get to people who really need them, so I would volunteer there again.

  • it’s great to help people in developing countries access medical supplies, so I like volunteering here. you probably don’t want to work for more than 2 or 3 hours because it gets tedious after a while. definitely a good cause!
