Equipment and goods are donated to us by hospitals, nursery homes, the medical industry, general practicians, and home care organizations. Also private persons, service clubs, charitable funds and other relieve organizations are supporting Medic in many ways. They all allow us to perform our mission and we are thankful for their support!
Medic Foundation is an organisation helping to provide medical goods and services to people in need in economically underdeveloped areas, irrespective of race, religion or creed
Past the establishment of the foundation by the surgeon A.J. Froeling in 1968, Medic has grown to an organization with about 90 volunteers with a broad expertise in many areas of health care and technology.
Most of the goods used are donated to us, others need to be purchased
In addition overhead expenses in the form of transportation cost, maintenance of the premises and rental of warehouses have to be compensated as well as the cost of new materials and repairs. Fortunately, our expenses can be kept low thanks to the fact that our organisation is run solely by unsalaried volunteers.
Our expenses are covered by requesting a relatively small donation from each applicant. In some specifically selected cases, limited supplies may be donated free of charge.
By carefully controlling our income and expenses we managed to create a favourable balance of accounts over the past years, thus enabling us to continue and improve our work.
