Esperança

Keeping Life-Saving Medical Supplies Out of the Landfill

Esperança’s Medical Supply Donation program delivers cargo containers carrying your medical donations to under-resourced hospitals, clinics, and community health centers around the world in addition to low-income housing facilities in Arizona, providing uninsured seniors with vital medical supplies.  An on-site assessment process ensures that every container delivered will meet the specific needs of the recipient hospital or clinic, equipping the medical staff with life-saving tools to improve diagnosis, treatment, and care.

 *Please note: Esperança does not have a pick-up service*
Medical supply donations may be sent to, or dropped off at our Phoenix office during business hours:
