Emory Swimmers and Divers Help in Haiti Relief Effort
Members of the Emory University swimming and diving team were
doing their part to help the relief efforts in Haiti, as a number
of Eagles volunteered with MedShare earlier this week.
MedShare is a nonprofit organization, which collects surplus medical supplies and equipment from hospitals, medical distribution companies and individuals, and then redistributes them to qualified healthcare facilities in the developing world. With the recent crisis in Haiti, much of MedShare's attention has been focus on the region.
Emory's swimmers and divers volunteered by repackaging surplus medical supplies from Atlanta-area hospitals that would normally be throw own, but instead will eventually be diverted to those in need, particularly in Haiti.
