    Default Need ideas for 501(c)(3) medicines donations

    I volunteer for a not-for-profit medical organization based in the US -- we go to the Dominican Republic and work with a dr. there to treat the poorest of the poor, whose only medical contact is when we go there every year. We have been buying most of our meds and carrying them with us to the DR. we need things like insulin, high blood pressure meds, antibiotics etc -- we give them a year's worth of meds (which they actually take & do not seem to sell!). I am looking for ideas as to how I might get some of this donated. We can use generics, as well as name brand. Any ideas would be appreciated! Thanks!

    Have you tried to align yourself with any Christian missions working in Central America? Lots of churches participate in supporting foreign missions. Our church supports missions in the San Blas Islands off the coast of Panama, we support mission work in Africa and China as well. I know that other churches in the United States do the same.

    It should NOT be that difficult to combine your efforts with others working in the area already as there are LOTS of missionaries in Central America. I would inquire about other Christian relief efforts in the area, talk to them and see if there are others you can work with who have similar goals and existing contacts.

    Our church does lots of remodel construction work in Panama, we work on programs there related to recovery from drug and alcohol addiction and we have supported medical missions in Africa and China as well. Most all of our supplies our donated, we even have businesses in the states who make regular donations for operating expenses for our missions.

    Help is out there just don't stop looking for others who are led to do the same work as you. Foreign mission work is truly a great calling. You have my respect. Good luck and God bless.

    I am not a dr. My statements are based on years of experience and related education. Consult with the professional of your choice regarding matters of concern.
