Globus Relief Charity Profile
The mission of Globus Relief is to improve the delivery of healthcare to those in need, by gathering, processing, and distributing medical and other humanitarian supplies to charities serving the needy in the US and abroad.
Every day, over 29,000 children throughout the world die from readily preventable and treatable illnesses (UNICEF report, 2006). Preventable health problems like diarrhea, malnutrtion, childbirth complications, wound infections and disease also claim the lives of thousands of adults every day. These people die simply because they lack the resources and access to basic healthcare required to meet minimum health and nutritional needs to sustain life.
There are hundreds of organizations -- medical clinics, relief agencies, food banks, aging services groups, orphanages, schools, etc. -- that strive to help these disadvantaged populations. Globus Relief aims to provide an efficient supply chain to support these charitable organizations that directly serve individuals in need. Globus Relief product donations help charities to reduce overhead costs and to focus their time on fulfilling their social missions. In this way, Globus Relief works to improve the financial strength and social effectiveness of hundreds of charitable organizations every year.
Globus Relief was founded in 1996. While working in the salvage retail industry, founders Kelly Farmer and Robert Haltom were saddened to see that viable medical and hygiene supplies frequently went to waste. Certain that these resources could be rescued and put to good use, Farmer and Haltom created Globus Relief to efficiently channel excess supplies to humanitarian projects, both locally and internationally.
Globus Relief is known for strong financial efficiency, historically keeping administrative and fundraising expenses to under 3% of our total budget.
