Humanitarian Crisis & Disaster Response


Natural disasters and humanitarian crises trigger our compassion and desire to help in some way. When we see images of suffering, we want to take action.

The difficult part is responding in a way that is actually helpful and appropriate.  Meeting local needs requires waiting for the people who have been directly impacted by the disaster to take the lead and tell us what they need and when they need it.

MSA accredited MSROs, donation partners and other stakeholders respond to emergencies in the United States and across the globe by providing donations that meet MSA Code of Conduct Standards and World Health Organization guidelines. 


MSA stakeholders are supporting those on the frontline of both treating and preventing the spread of COVID-19. Learn

How to Help

Follow Disaster Donation Guidelines


Support responsible donation practices that provide caregivers the appropriate and quality medical products they need to treat patients. Doing so prevents a "second disaster." A disaster created by tons of useless products shipped to already overburdened settings. 


Partner with MSA Accredited Medical Surplus Recovery Organizations


Experienced MSROs stand ready with the expertise and partners required to collect, assess, store, manage, and ship donated products where and when they are needed.
MSA members coordinate with Ministries of Health and country authorities to verify the need and local capacity to accept donations. 


Donate Money - A little cash goes a long way! 

Cash is flexible. Disaster relief is long-term.

Cash provides the flexibility that relief organizations need to do their jobs well. 


Every dollar donated to the MedSurplus Alliance helps strengthen and rebuild healthcare systems by delivering $11-$15 worth of quality medical supplies.
