FOW - USA (Friends of Ostomates Worldwide)
Welcome from FOW-USA to the 49th Annual Conference.
The Friends of Ostomates Worldwide-USA is a 501(c) (3) non-profit, volunteer-run organization. Our mission is to provide ostomy supplies and educational materials to ostomates in need around the world. We collect new donated ostomy equipment from suppliers, ostomy groups, WOC nurses, individuals, pharmacies and ship overseas to those who cannot afford or access supplies. We provide educational materials to enable individuals and those who care for ostomates, to understand the proper use of the equipment. We encourage you to let your patients know that we can use supplies they can no longer use and they can send them to our warehouse; their donation and shipping costs will be tax deductible. We know that WOC nurses collect unused supplies and we welcome you sending those to us, we can accept “orphaned” pouching systems; at our warehouse we can find matches to almost all products. For further information please take some time to view our website, www.fowusa.org. We look forward to seeing you at our booth and can answer questions and provide you with mailing labels.
