An Extraordinary Year
As we close the book on the extraordinary year that was 2017, we're humbled that amid economic downturn, a Super Bowl, Hurricane Harvey devastation, and a World Series win, your support never wavered. The faithfulness of our donors and volunteers ensured that shipments of life-saving medical supplies and equipment continued to bridge the healthcare gap. In fact, Medical Bridges shipped far more supplies in 2017 than ever before - 83 shipments of hope! Your generosity impacted lives in our community and abroad.

A Houston company is exploring such opportunities as a partnership with the nonprofit Medical Bridges to create a medical building in Guatemala.

The Houston Chronicle's November 22, 2017 story, "Houston proves to be a most generous city!", includes the Charity Navigator list of Houston's Top Ten Charities, on which Medical Bridges is third.

Medical Bridges continues to help those affected by the devastion of Hurricane Harvey.

July 19, 2017 marked Medical Bridges' 20th anniversary, and the kickoff of a year of celebration. We are grateful for the support of our donors, volunteers, board members and partners throughout the world! Since 1997, Medical Bridges has delivered roughly $90 million in medical supplies and equipment to more than 85 countries on five continents. And, each year thousands of cubic feet of usable medical surplus have been diverted from ending up in landfills.
