Mission Statement

VISION STATEMENT: The LIG Global Foundation's vision is that of a global community in which all persons have access to excellent health-care, where no one is forgotten, and where human dignity is cherished. MISSION STATEMENT: To deliver humanitarian relief to people in great need around the world by bringing together dedicated medical and non-medical volunteers, supplies and technology. To learn about, integrate into and work within the culture of the communities we serve in order to educate and train local personnel and thereby develop collaborative, self-sustaining satellites of excellence in healthcare in underserved areas. To inspire medical volunteerism by educating healthcare professionals and facilitating their participation in international charitable medical projects. LIG seeks to reach out to those who have been forgotten.

Description

The LIG GLobal Foundation' specifi goals include:

  • Performing a detailed needs assessment of each particular location in which LIG is working in order to:
    • Determine that the particular population of that location is indeed underserved
    • Determine what medical needs are present in that population
    • Determine how best to fulfill those needs
  • Bringing highly educated "experts" in various medical fields as needed to serve these populations by:
    • Paving the way for their successful work
      • Arranging for their safe travel and lodging in the areas they are serving
      • Keeping the volunteer time commitments short enough (1-2 weeks) to allow busy, working volunteers to join LIG's efforts around the globe on a recurring basis without leaving their jobs and family for prohibitive amounts of time
      • Performing in-depth planning prior to each project to ensure that the volunteers can "hit the ground running" when they arrive at a project location, and thereby be as efficient and productive as possible
  • Educating local members of the community in medical care with a long-term goal of having local community members assume the roles of LIG's volunteers over time and thereby become independent and sustainable by their own abilities
  • Instituting tele-health solutions to enable sustainable support of remote communities by LIG's volunteers through virtual connections in addition to actual in-person connections
