Supplies Over Seas (SOS)is a Louisville based 501(c)3 nonprofit that partners with hospitals and other medical institutions to recover surplus medical supplies and used equipment that would otherwise go into our landfills. The surplus is then redistributed to medically impoverished communities worldwide. In 2015, SOS received 153 tons of surplus medical supplies and equipment that would have otherwise gone into a landfill. Additionally, because of the hard work of many dedicated volunteers and staff, SOS was able to ship more than 95 tons of urgently needed medical surplus, conservatively valued at $3 million. We also equipped 90 medical mission teams traveling to 31 countries last year. SOS is one of only 15 medical surplus recovery organizations across the U.S. and the only such organization serving Kentucky, Southern Indiana and Southern Ohio.
