InterVol has served more than 70 countries worldwide. From Borneo to Bosnia and everywhere in between, InterVol continues to ship medical supplies around the world to those who need it the most.
Our greatest challenge still remains, finding the funding to ship the supplies and equipment collected to those in need around the world.
Because of your donation today, you are helping us to connect the world's neediest to materials, people and opportunities. Your support today makes a big difference to a lot of people, and for that we are sincerely grateful.
Thank you on behalf of all the children and families InterVol serves.
InterVol began in the late '80s when our founder, Dr. Ralph Pennino, saw firsthand while doing volunteer work in developing nations that what they most desperately needed were things we throw away every day: unused medical supplies and functioning medical equipment. What started as a small collection of rescued items now fills two Rochester, NY, warehouses, totaling 20,000 square feet! In addition to the recovery program, co-founder Dr. Timothy O’Connor, along with Dr. Pennino, recognized the local medical community's desire to do even more. Begun with just a small group of doctors, nurses, and allied health personnel interested in volunteering their services, the concept evolved into our Volunteer Medical Professionals Program, which is active today in countries all over the world.
