Right now, medical supplies are in high demand in Gaza, even more so than food. I know a lot of people in Jordan have been asking how they can donate medical supplies. Fortunately, blogger Umm Farouq has managed to pull together a great initiative with “Pharmacy One”. So, if you’re in Jordan, you can now purchase a “relief package” from any of the 40 “Pharmacy One” chains across the Kingdom. The packages are 20JD, 50JD and 100JDs and all you have to do is walk in to one of the stores, purchase as many as you want, and you’ll get a receipt.
Aramex will be making the pickups from all the “Pharmacy One” chains. Here’s a list of all of them so you can find one near you:

So, we just pay and then Aramex will pick up the boxes and organized the delivery? I understood before that we had to take the box to an Aramex site to deliver it.
Um Omar, Um Farouq got word from Aramex they will do pick ups! A great help for taxi-dependent, empty-hanaat-busy moms.
Thanks for the info, will spread it around, lets hope the supplies reach the people there in time.
I have just been down to Pharmacy One at Cozmo and chosen a package for JD 101.46. I think it is a wonderful idea but I hope that all the medicines in the lists are what are needed and that Pharmacy One will put the same medicines together for easier distribution at the other end. Are we paying wholesale prices for the medicines or pharmacy prices? T
Philanthropic discretion is not your forte, I see..
Personally, I wouldn’t worry if the prices are wholesale or retail. Pharmacy1 has really good, affordable prices to begin with.
All the best.
Annie B – I am not quite sure what ‘philanthropic discretion’ means! But I have been involved with huge amounts of donations from the First Gulf War through to now and you might be surprised at the amount of money people make through disasters. I am not accusing Pharmacy One of anything but just would simply like to know. T
What about ways to help from here in the UK?
If you have a PayPal account, I’m sure something can be done. We used PayPal in Ramadan to get funds from the UK to purchase food boxes for people in Jordan. It’s a good way to send money, and your money would be put to good use!
The regional manager spent all day working with her pharmacists putting together the most appropriate lists of items that they can send out legally (excluding things like insulin and anti-rejection drugs, as well as class 4 narcotics, which have to be sent out by companies such as Hikmah). I think they really thought it out thoroughly. Thank you so much for your generosity in this time of great need.
As far as wholesale or pharmacy prices, I am not sure. I can find out for you, though.
This is brilliant! Thank you for keeping Jordan updated on ways we can feel helpful in this miserable situation!
The Pharmacy One contact just sent me a message stating:
“We are not allowed to sell at warehouse prices as per the pharmacy and health law. We sell at pharmacy prices.”
Aramex would like to thank you for your generous hearty contributions which only reflect the noble and human side in each and everyone of you.
We would like to cordially bring to your attention that Pharmacy One is providing the medicine at discount prices when donated to Gaza in a gesture to encourage donations and help provide as much assistance as possible to our people there.
For enquiries please call Aramex Mr. Sudud Qubtan Ø³Ø¤Ø¯Ø¯ Ù‚Ø¨Ø·Ø§Ù† at +962 (7) 95149291 who will provide you with all the information you need.
Also for pickup from Amman please call us anytime at 5358855.
Let us all deliver hope to Gaza.
I think this is a great initiative. Thanks for organizing this
Philanthropic discretion means not being boastful about the charity you give.
