Mission Statement

M edical Missionaries, a 501(c)(3) company, is a volunteer group of more than 200 doctors, nurses, dentists, and others who work to improve the health of the poorest of the poor in the U.S. and throughout the world. We provide medical care and medical supplies, clothing and food to the areas we serve.

One area of focus has been along the Haiti-Dominican Republic border. In Thomassique, Haiti, we have built and support a clinic (hospital), the first medical facility in this region of more than 125,000 people. We also work with the local residents to provide other health-related projects such as water purification and the use of fortified salt.

Description

Medical Missionaries functions in four areas of public health in some of the poorest regions of the United States and the rest of the world:

  • Collection and distribution of medicine, medical equipment, and medical supplies
  • Sending teams of doctors, nurses, and dentists to areas where their services are needed
  • Providing medical education for professionals in the U.S. and abroad
  • Building and supporting a model clinic in Thomassique, Haiti
