Help Project C.U.R.E. deliver life-saving medical supplies to hospitals and clinics in developing countries. You can partner with us to serve individuals and families in desperate need around the world, and you don't even have to leave the city.

As an engineering / technician volunteer, you will help test medical devices and prepare them for shipment. Tasks may also include performing repairs and researching new devices. Our engineers are critical in ensuring that all of the machines Project C.U.R.E. sends are functional when they reach hospitals and clinics abroad.
