Together, we will deliver health & hope to the world.
Project C.U.R.E. was founded in 1987 to address the staggering shortage of medical resources around the world. Since our humble beginnings in a garage in Colorado, Project C.U.R.E. has become the world’s largest distributor of donated medical supplies, equipment and services to doctors and nurses serving the sick and dying in more than 135 countries.
Each week Project C.U.R.E. delivers approximately three to five semi-truck-sized ocean containers packed with the medical equipment and supplies desperately needed to save lives in hospitals and clinics in resource-limited countries. In addition, each year hundreds of healthcare professionals travel with Project C.U.R.E. to provide medical treatment to communities in need and training to those dedicated to serving them. Project C.U.R.E. is supported by over 30,000 volunteers annually and operates distribution warehouses in seven U.S. cities.
In addition to our global work, Project C.U.R.E. pivoted in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to support the need for PPE and medical equipment in the U.S. Since March 2020, Project C.U.R.E. provided more than 15 semi-truck loads of medical aid, which equates to 4.5+ million pieces and nearly $5 millions of PPE for healthcare workers and first responders. Project C.U.R.E. continues on the frontline of the battle against the pandemic by providing millions of dollars of COVID-19 aid on a weekly basis.
We’re focused on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases such as HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, Ebola, and COVID19. We also work alongside health experts to treat victims of earthquakes, floods, and other natural disasters as well as societal crises.
Our programs are funded by grants from the U.S. government, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and by the generous support of philanthropic foundations, corporate partners and individual donors from all walks of life. We’re proud to say that we’re regularly ranked as one of the top charities in America by Charity Navigator, The Chronicle of Philanthropy, Guidestar, Top Nonprofits, and Forbes Magazine, and were recently given a Top COVID-Relief distinction by Charity Navigator.
At the heart of Project C.U.R.E. are people like you who are willing to get involved. Together we can change the world!
