What are we about?

The word “mihret” is Ethiopian for “mercy” and our mission is to mercifully redistribute quality donated medical equipment and supplies to hospitals that serve the poor in underdeveloped and developing countries of the world, and help to train and educate hospital staff in it’s utilization.  MMSG’s headquarters, repair unit, warehouse and shipping facilities are in Charlottesville, Virginia, approximately 60 miles west of Richmond.  After receiving and repairing, donations are packaged and shipped to hospitals world-wide.  Upon arrival training and educational services are provided in the use of the new equipment.

MMSG seeks to acquire materials from regional hospitals, clinics, physician offices, surgery centers, homecare, and individuals. The following is a list of medical equipment and consumable supplies that Mihret Medical seeks out. If you have any questions about making a gift-in-kind donation to MedWish, please call us at (888) 538-4088 or email us at [email protected].


Mihret Group DOES NOT recover prescription medicines or items dispensed to and thus contaminated by direct patient contact, nor can we accept donations of expired supplies.

While the supplies themselves are free, Mihret Group necessarily charges a fee for the labor and materials necessary for packaging and providing them to overseas recipients. Overseas recipients agree to pay for all shipping and receiving charges.
