Global Medical Aid
Foreningen Global Medical Aid
Formand Hans Frederik Dydensborg
The concept behind GMA is simple. We collect usable medicine and functional hospital equipment for the benefit of third world countries. At present, we have donated to Afghanistan, Albania, Benin, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cambodia, Kenya, North Macedonia, Nepal, Senegal, Somalia, Somaliland, Sri Lanka, Tanzania and Ukraine in cooperation with the Ministries of Health and/or international organizations concerned. In the long run, we expect to donate to more countries.
Every day, more than 5 tonnes of medicine are destroyed in Denmark, most of which are still fully usable. At the same time, the Danish hospitals discard functional hospital equipment for several million DKK every year, because new technology is developed and "obsolete devices" are constantly replaced with newer equipment.
Total donations until July 2023: 297.868.682 DKK (44,897,607 USD)
