      FEDES Medical aid

        Each year hospitals in the U.S. discard literally tons of unused surgical supplies, in addition to replacing millions of dollars of medical equipment. With many in developing nations literally dying for lack of this same equipment and materials, FEDES undertakes bridging supply and demand in a not-for-profit venture.

      Medical supplies, including many that we take for granted but are luxuries elsewhere -such as bandages and syringes -are channeled to facilities offering care for Chile's poor. You can imagine the reaction when handicapped people like those shown below are given a free wheelchair, after never having had one their entire lives!

      Annually, we import and distribute within Chile 7-10 forty-foot shipping containers of hospital equipment, medical supplies, wheelchairs, ambulances, etc. placing these items according to need.
