AIMS Healthcare Charities

Volunteers pack shipments of new and donated medical supplies

Volunteers at M.A. Center, San Ramon work in an on-site warehouse, purchasing new equipment and preparing donated medical supplies for shipment to Amma's state of the art charitable hospital in India. The Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences and Research Center, AIMS, is one of Southeast Asia’s premier hospitals. Shipments include everything from bandages, beds and gurneys to ambulances, linear accelerators, MRIs, PET CT, gamma cameras, and cath labs.

To date, volunteers have packed over 146 ocean containers and 116 air freight shipments of new and donated medical equipment and supplies. Many of the volunteers have been with the project since its inception in 1996, as a way of supporting Amma's charities and serving those in need.
