A Win-Win Opportunity

The Power of Collaboration

We had the pleasure of meeting two volunteers from a student-led organization called United2Heal, established at the Virginia Commonwealth University located in Richmond, VA. Faisal Alshareif and Ahmed Abdeen are leading members of this growing humanitarian aid organization. Striving to improve their knowledge, they decided to visit Medical Bridges and learn how to effectively procure and managed inventory, identify recipients, prepare products for shipping, etc.  

Mission Focus

Medical Bridges was honored to participate in the Sugar Land Baptist Church Missions Fair on February 15.  During the event, parishioners visited with the 30-plus nonprofit organizations that their church supports.


Thank you to Sugar Land Baptist Church for your continued support of the Medical Bridges mission.
