(Undergraduate Students) Supporting Hospitals Abroad with Resources and Equipment (SHARE)


S.H.A.R.E. is an organization that recovers useful medical supplies that would otherwise be discarded in order to donate them to developing countries. The program is entirely managed by volunteer students and other Johns Hopkins community members who use their spare time to collect, sterilize, label, sort and package medical supplies. Most recovered materials come from the operating rooms in clean, usable condition but cannot be reused at Hopkins because of current regulations or surgical practices. The program is run through flexible shifts and task assignments; volunteers can contribute as much time as they want, from one shift per month to serving on the group's managing board. The room is always open and you can help anytime, an ideal opportunity if you want to help but do not want to commit to a specific time and day every week. You can make your own schedule according to your availability. S.H.A.R.E. is a fantastic way to give a little of your time to have a large impact on the health of people around the world, and we hope you'll join us.
