Our Mission

Our Mission

Supplies Over Seas meets critical health care needs in developing countries around the world by recovering and redistributing surplus medical supplies and equipment.  SOS promotes environmental stewardship, partnering with hospitals and others to recover and send what would otherwise go to the landfill.

Our Vision

To become a first class regional medical surplus recovery organization, promoting global health, environmental stewardship and community awareness. SOS will do this through the efficient recovery, processing and responsible redistribution of medical supplies and equipment to improve healthcare for the poor and underserved worldwide.

Our Community

SOS relies on the generosity of donors, volunteers, and friends; it receives no government funding, and accomplishes its big mission with a very small staff. SOS directly benefits underserved peoples living in medically impoverished communities at home and abroad by delivering necessary medical supplies and equipment to health clinics, hospitals, and other institutions. 95% of the donated materials SOS receives are donated, repurposed, or recycled. SOS supplies match surplus with need, connecting communities, and delivering a world of health and hope.
