SOS’s Hand Carry Program allows medical relief workers undertaking short-term work abroad to visit SOS’s Medical Team “Store” to collect needed supplies and equipment that can be carried with them in their luggage. A donation of $100 is requested for the first 50 pounds of supplies and equipment, and an additional donation of $2/pound is requested for any supplies and equipment beyond the first 50 pounds.
Approved applicants come to the SOS warehouse to pick out their supplies for their trip. Please keep in mind that the Medical Team Store has a limited supply of items available due to its size. If you need to take more than 100 lbs of supplies, large quantities of very specific items, rare items, or are unable to come to the SOS warehouse- check out our Custom Box Program.
