container program

PWH collects excess and donated medical equipment & supplies from healthcare facilities and individuals in the Northeast United States and prepares them for shipment to under-resourced communities or crisis zones around the world. Contents are packed in a 40' container sent by sea and are valued at over $335,000. 


  • Interested partners must first complete the online Container Request Form linked below

  • PWH will share our internal Facility Assessment Form and Master Inventory Request List for completion by receiving facility/organization's staff or faculty

  • Upon receipt of the above forms, PWH will draft a proposed inventory list ("Pro Forma Manifest") for your review

  • Partner reviews, negotiates and approves final inventory list

  • PWH issues invoice for processing fees + shipping fees; shipping fees are required as a deposit on the project before staging can commence

    • PWH does not include the customs duties/taxes or clearing fees on the invoice - those costs are the sole responsibility of the importing partner​

    • PWH is happy to offer crowdfunding opportunities; inquire below to learn more

  • PWH stages 1,000+ boxes and tens of pieces of equipment for shipment - no space is wasted in our containers! Boxes & equipment are packed tight in the container but are not palletized! Please plan accordingly. 

  • Loading date is agreed upon and shipping commences with one of PWH's trusted freight forwarders, who will keep your consignee and team informed every step of the way to final delivery

    • Incoterms are negotiable and customized for every shipment​

  • After the shipment arrives and is unloaded, we want to hear from you!​​

    • All shipping partners must return PWH's post-shipment survey between 30-90 days of final delivery​

    • Photos, video and testimony are required for submission with the survey
