Mission Statement

To heal the hurting globally and locally by providing life-saving pharmaceuticals, vitamins and medical supplies to medical mission teams, clinics and hospitals; to build healthy communities by treating the poor and victims of endemic medical problems, outbreaks of disease, or overwhelming disasters; to transform lives by actively demonstrating the love and compassion of Jesus Christ.

Description

Blessings International serves as a source of vitamins and medical supplies for Christian hospitals, clinics and dispensaries in over 80 developing nations. From 1981 to today, Blessings International has served medical ministries in more than 140 nations. A similar service is provided to medical teams performing short-term medical outreaches in isolated locations that have limited or no health services available. Frequently access even to primary care is determined by one factor only: the availability of medicines for use in treating needy and otherwise indigent patients. While nationally trained nurses and physicians are available, medicine is typically the major missing component of health care delivery in most developing nations. Access to donated medicine or low cost medicine is the problem which Blessings International assists in overcoming.

Vitmains and medical supplies received through Blessings International are also helping many patients here in the USA. Having augmented the variety of our purchased inventory, we now serve clinics in the US that are based in churches or run by charitable organizations. While the amount of medicines shipped to these clinics is small compared to that shipped abroad, the number of requests for use in treating indigents in the US is steady. We are very pleased to be able to have a part in assisting very needy people within the US in addition to those in developing nations.
