It's very inspiring to read about organizations that are dealing with a specific aspect of healthcare. Medshare was an early favorite of mine because of their brilliant plan to bridge the gap between medical surplus and need. On their Critical Need Alert page they highlight a hospital each month. This month is Kirker Hospital in Niger--where only one third of the population has access to healthcare and 25% of children die before the age of five due to diseases and malnutrition. They are sending this hospital a 40-foot container filled with medical supplies and equipment.
