About World Medical Relief, Inc.
World Medical Relief was established in 1953 by a Detroit housewife, Mrs. Irene M. Auberlin, to address the physical and medical needs of Korean War orphans. Inspired by a news story about orphans of the Korean War, Mrs. Auberlin began collecting usable items from her friends and fellow church members to send overseas. She also persuaded area business leaders to donate goods and services, including medical supplies and equipment, and to assist with international shipping. Expanding from that initial drive, World Medical Relief has been able to provide medical aid to communities in need in more than a hundred nations worldwide. We facilitate the distribution of surplus medical resources where they are needed, which gives us both a local and international focus.
Our goods are distributed in a non-discriminatory manner, without regard to race, color, gender, religion, nationality, ethnicity or political beliefs. The mission of World Medical Relief is to relieve human suffering, demonstrate respect for all customers, clients and patients; collaborate with community organizations to provide services to those in need, and maintain a proactive approach in improving the services that are provided.
