OUR MISSION


To improve the delivery of healthcare worldwide by gathering, processing and distributing surplus medical and health supplies to charities at home and abroad.
The world’s response to this need has not been enough. In 2016, the United Nations estimated total required aid to meet emergency level and urgent needs of the most vulnerable Syrians at $4.5 billion; by March of this year, only $2.9 billion had been received. As Antonio Guterres, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, has said, "The Syria crisis has become the biggest humanitarian emergency of our era, yet the world is failing to meet the needs of refugees and the countries hosting them.”

We can choose to do more.

In 2017, Globus Relief teamed up with Islamic Relief USA and other refugee-focused charities to do its portion of the “more” that is needed. Globus Relief packed 28 forty-foot containers full with 3000 medical mattresses and 240 pallets of medical products. Shipped in January, these containers arrived in Turkey on March 24, 2017 and are being utilized in local hospitals and clinics serving refugees in that refugee-laden area. These items will enable these charities to continue to supply more than 250 hospitals and clinics and perform essential medical treatments, which currently number more than 1.8 million to date.

The need is tremendous. Let us do more.
