Recover Program General Information
  The Recover program began in 1995 in CFHI's San Francisco office where unused medical supplies and durable medical equipment received from all over the US were inventoried, sorted and redistributed to CFHI program sites and underserved communities worldwide. Through this program CFHI distributed over 10 million dollars of supplies to communities in need, supplies that would have otherwise gone to waste in most cases. In 2008 the overwhelming generosity of donors outpaced our capacity to accept and process donations at our San Francisco office.

CFHI remains committed to ensuring that donations of medical supplies, equipment and unused medications reach those most in need at our program sites and worldwide. We will continue to sponsor large shipping containers of medical supplies and equipment which will be sent several times a year to our program partners in developing countries.

If you would like to make a donation of medical supplies or equipment, we encourage you to send donations to our partner VIDA, a medical relief organization with a large warehouse in Emeryville, CA (www.vidausa.org). Kindly contact them at 510-655-8432 before sending your donations to determine what unused medical supplies and equipment they can accept.

CFHI is no longer able to send medical supply boxes to individual CFHI program participants. However, we would like to urge CFHI students to collect basic supplies such as gloves, syringes, dressings and masks on your own to carry with you to your program site, as a way of establishing goodwill with your host community. Please visit the CFHI Resources page by logging into your CFHI Student Account for more information about how to get started.

If you are interested in starting your own Recover collection program in your community or medical school, we encourage you to contact one of the organizations near you that can accept your donations:

  • VIDA, Emeryville, CA (www.vidausa.org)
  • Medshare West, San Leandro, CA (www.medshare.org)
  • Globus Relief, Utah (www.globusrelief.org)
  • World Medical Relief, Michigan (www.worldmedicalrelief.com)
  • Remedy, Connecticut (www.remedyinc.org)
