Cardboard Pharmacy Project

The Cardboard Pharmacy is a great group, business or church project to collect much needed over-the-counter medicines! FAME's short-term mission teams take these medicines in their luggage to get them to the field quickly. Each year our teams carry in more than 2 tons of medical supplies.

Click here for a list of much needed medications.

How it works:

  • Get a Cardboard Pharmacy packet with everything you need: CBP box label, lists of needed vitamins and medications, and return labels.
  • Quickly collect the vitamins and medicine and fill the box.
  • Take your box with the FAME return label to the nearest FedEx, UPS, or USPS and ship it back to FAME.
  • FAME sorts and sends these medicines through short-term teams and in small shipments.
  • Missionaries distribute the medicine through medical camps and clinics and share the Gospel with those who come.

How To Stretch A Dollar

Insider Tip: "Dollar stores" sell over-the-counter medicines at very low prices, sometimes lower than even FAME can buy them. Talk with the store manager to order a whole case of over-the-counter medicines, like Tylenol, for cheap. The buy-one-get one offers are another great way to get more bang for your buck!

Buying vitamins and other medicines at retail prices can be expensive. FAME has a medicine supplier where we buy our medicines significantly cheaper. If you would rather give cash for the purchase of medicines we can often stretch your dollar further.
