Two projects that we have in mind are listed below:

You could: recruit bag sewers, organize volunteers to pack them, host/co-lead a session at Global Links or in your classroom to educate peers about maternal and infant health disparities.
2. Sharing Surplus, Saving Lives: Coordinate collection of home medical supplies (crutches, asthma nebulizers, etc.), diverting useful materials from PA landfills for use in resource-poor communities. Organize volunteers to prep and pack materials and host/co-lead a session at Global Links or in your classroom to educate peers about global health issues.
