Medicine & Supplies Depot , Stratford, ON Canada
Contact: Jean Aitcheson <>

Surplus and recycled medications and health care supplies are gathered by Rotarians and friends in a small warehouse where they organize and inventory items weekly.  Left over or near-expiry items are gathered from hospitals, pharmacies, doctors or those who have passed away with remaining supplies.   

The depot supports humanitarian aid projects and medical mission trips by providing needed medicines and supplies.  If you are within driving distance and travelling abroad, they can supply needed items for you to take and share with clinics to help others. 

This depot supports and helps to coordinate a network of Doctors, Dentists and Nursing volunteers who travel abroad to bring much needed health care services to unfortunate indigenous people.

MESA - Medical Equipment Shipped Abroad, Findlay, OH USA
Contact: Bob Ruehl Gary Davis

MESA maintains a warehouse in Findlay, Ohio to collect, organize and distribute donated items around the world.  This District 6600 project welcomes surplus medical furniture, fixtures, equipment and related items that can be recycled and used to help those in less fortunate situations.
Rotarians sort and send items abroad in container shipments each month.  Available items often include: beds, chairs, examination tables, wheel chairs, surgery equipment and lighting, X-ray units, intravenous pumps/poles, testing and sterilization units, scrubs and sometimes training items like computers or sewing machines, etc. 

The supply of items changes weekly and volunteers are needed to help sort and inventory items.  MESA will ship containers upon request but due to limited resources it is difficult for them to customize shipments. 

Donations are also appreciated to help cover the shipping costs.  For Rotarians working on health projects and within driving distance, the MESA team are always happy to have you visit.  Best to arrange a convenient time in advance.
