ATLANTA, GA (CBS46) -

An Atlanta-based organization is lending its help to the typhoon victims.

MedShare is sending 40-foot containers of medical supplies to the Philippines. It's equipping medical mission teams who are treating critically injured survivors.

"Right now we're focusing on providing basic supplies that are needed for medical care," said Meridith Rentz with MedShare. "That would be things like gauze, gloves ... anything that can be used for wound care."

MedShare is a nonprofit that recovers and redistributes surplus medical supplies from hospitals and medical companies to developing countries. You can help in their efforts with the typhoon victims in the Philippines by donating to their Urgent Humanitarian Relief Program.
