Louisville-based non-profit shipping hospital beds to Serbia

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- It's an effort to help hospitals in third-world countries. 

Louisville-based non-profit Supplies Over Seas loaded up a 40-foot shipping container full of hospital beds today. They'll help patients in Serbian hospitals and clinics.

The organization partners with regional health institutions getting surplus or used supplies to those in need.

"When they do upgrades to their facilities, they are environmental stewards and they are humanitarian aid-driven, and they make those upgrades available to supplies overseas to share with communities from around the world," said Melissa Mershon, president of Supplies Over Seas.

Supplies Over Seas is one of only 15 medical surplus recovery organizations in the U.S.
