United 2 Heal (U2H) is an undergraduate-run nonprofit humanitarian organization at the University of Michigan that helps eliminate global health disparities by collecting, sorting, and shipping medical supplies to countries in need.

Join Us In The Fight Against Global Health Inequity

ABOUT

Our Roots

First founded in 2007 at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, United 2 Heal (U2H) is an undergraduate-run nonprofit humanitarian organization. We strongly believe that each and every human being in the world deserves the same access to high-quality healthcare. Our mission is to fight global health inequity by collecting, sorting, and shipping surplus medical supplies to areas in desperate need all around the world. Our volunteers can be found at World Medical Relief in Southfield, MI, where United 2 Heal is, and has long been, the #1 student organization and an important source of vital student leaders.

We take pride in our shipments. United 2 Heal raises funds throughout the year and we use the money to sponsor the shipment of a 40'​ shipping container full of medical supplies from World Medical Relief in Southfield, MI to a country in need. Throughout our history, we have sent several shipments, totaling several millions of dollars of medical supplies. The shipment we are currently working on will be sent to the Ivory Coast in January 2020. Our next shipment is scheduled to be sent to Pakistan in the next several months.

Most notably, United 2 Heal volunteers are among the first in the world to assist in the restoration of pacemaker devices for reuse. Between 1 and 2 million people die every year from lack of a pacemaker, which can cost tens of thousands of dollars per device. As part of an ongoing and revolutionary clinical trial led by My Heart Your Heart, United 2 Heal volunteers are helping to make pacemaker restoration a reality. Ever since this groundbreaking work began for the first time at World Medical Relief in recent years, our volunteers have been working with My Heart Your Heart to interrogate, de-lead, and further process tens of thousands of pacemaker devices, each of which has the potential to save a life.

Our community is primarily composed of students and alumni of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, but very recently United 2 Heal has founded new chapters at Wayne State University in Detroit, MI and at Oakland University in Rochester, MI. United 2 Heal is composed of an Executive Board, a body of active members, and a large community of casual volunteers. Our community means a lot to us, and we organize several social events, workshops, and fundraisers throughout the year to bring people together in recognition of our shared mission.

We would like to thank our long time official partners:
