WHAT WE DO

EMBRACE Foundation Recycles DME.

Did you know?

Most Durable Medical Equipment (DME) isn’t reused in the United States. It’s thrown away.

EMBRACE repurposes donated DME items, such as braces, splints and crutches, for use in under-developed countries.

Your brace, wheelchair or splint helped you recover – now you can ensure that it will help someone else in need.
