C.H.I.M.S. work relies heavily on the generosity of various individuals and
organizations to help us provide support to the medical mission teams by
providing them with the needed equipment. CHIMS uses such donations in
order to cover expenses for:

  • Daily office operations
  • Listing, transferring and transporting equipment needed by medical mission teams

Please consider donating to help C.H.I.M.S. achieve its mission and help
children get better care around the globe


C.H.I.M.S. basic needs involve collecting unused and donated equipment relevant to cardiac catheterization from catheter laboratories in North America to provide a source for equipment needed to support medical mission trips to developing countries. If you are a hospital, cardiac center or catheterization laboratory that is considering donating equipment to our cause please register or contact us at the address below.
