Ordering an International Shipping Container

Since 1998, MedShare has delivered over $272 million worth of life saving medical supplies and equipment to 117 countries. We work with corporations, foreign governments, nonprofit organizations and individuals who wish to sponsor a donation to specified healthcare recipients abroad.

To apply for medical supplies to be donated via an international shipping container:

1. Complete an application online (en Español, en Français). Or download and fax in a form in English, Español, or Français.

2. Secure the necessary funding for your shipment — $28,000USD for a forty-foot container.

3. Secure shipping documentation and provide proof of Duty Free Clearance (typically given by the Ministry of Finance).

4. After the application is reviewed, you will be contacted by a member of MedShare’s staff to be approved as a recipient.

5. While online ordering is currently unavailable for container shipments, you will be able to order online soon. Until then, please contact Roger Mforneh at to assist you with your order.

(On average, around 800-1,000 boxes of consumable supplies and 30-40 pieces of fully functional biomedical equipment fill one 40-foot container. Equipment is not available online but will be assigned by MedShare’s Biomedical Department based on your wish-list and available inventory.)

6. MedShare will ship your container to the designated ocean port. Customs clearance and onward transportation from the port to the final place of delivery will be your responsibility.

7. After you have received your shipment, the recipient will complete a feedback survey and send photos of donated products and other items that illustrate the shipment’s impact.


For questions regarding shipments, please contact Roger Mforneh at at 404-537-5073.
