Airfreight for Syria Earthquake Relief – April 2023
On March 23, 20 pallets full of oxygen concentrators, syringes, needles, and other medical supplies left the Kansas City warehouse destined for Syria in response to the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that shook southeast Turkiye near the Syrian border on February 28, 2023. The earthquake exacerbated an already challenging situation in Syria due to the ongoing war. The United Nations reports that only 1 in 7 health centers in the region are even partially functional, making it very difficult for people to access essential healthcare services. The medical supplies shipped will provide much-needed help to healthcare providers with little to no access to the supplies they need to treat their patients.
Project C.U.R.E. Kansas City Warehouse Celebrates 100th Shipment – March 2023
The Project C.U.R.E. | Franciscan Mission Warehouse celebrated their 100th shipment of donated life-saving medical supplies and equipment to needy people around the world. Tuesday, March 14, staff and volunteers will mark the event at the 50,000-square-foot Hunt Midwest Subtropolis warehouse by packing a semi-truck trailer of essential medical donations including exam tables, gurneys, consumable items, surgical supplies, and biomedical equipment.
The 100th container shipment went to support clinics in Suriname, South America. The items will be used to provide primary and preventative care services to the community where maternal mortality is more than twice that in the United States and a per capita income of $4,500 per year.
“We will continue to serve those in need around the world for the next 100 shipments and the 100 after that,” said Kristin Robinson, Executive Director – Kansas City. “I invite each of you to join us as we take our mission to the next level in Kansas City and around the world.”
KC Warehouse Marks 1-Year Anniversary of War in Ukraine – February 2023
One year ago today, Russian troops crossed the Ukrainian border, marking the start of a deadly conflict that has claimed the lives of thousands. Within days, Project C.U.R.E. responded by delivering urgently needed medical supplies and equipment to Ukraine. Over the last year, Project C.U.R.E. has delivered over $20 million worth of medical supplies and equipment. This wouldn’t be possible without the support of our dedicated volunteers. In honor of the one-year anniversary of this devastating conflict, volunteers gathered in the Kansas City warehouse to sort supplies in preparation for another shipment to Ukraine. Project C.U.R.E. will continue to provide Ukraine with ongoing support, thanks to our faithful volunteers!

St. Mark’s Catholic Church 8th Annual Spaghetti Dinner – October 2022
In Independence, Missouri, St. Mark’s Catholic Church hosted the 8th annual Spaghetti Dinner to raise money for Project C.U.R.E. The event was a great success with nearly 100 people attending to enjoy a great meal for an even better cause. Thanks to everyone who attended, $30,000 was raised which was enough to send a 40’ container filled with medical supplies and equipment to an under-resourced community!
