Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Community Health Systems, Health, International, International Development

Mission: Medical Missionaries is a volunteer group of more than 200 doctors, nurses, dentists, and others who work to improve the health of the poor in the U.S. and throughout the world.  We provide medical care, 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), and we also work to provide potable water and to overcome childhood malnutrition.  We also organized earthquake relief efforts in Haiti, assembled supplies and medical teams, and worked with other relief organizations. For more info visit our website:  http://www.medmissionaries.org

Programs: Shipments of medicine and supplies were sent to several countries, especially haiti and the dominican republic. In addition, teams of medical personnel (doctors, dentists, nurses, etc) were sent to haiti and the dominican republic to provide on-site medical care to the local population. Finally, an actual clinic was operated in haiti which is staffed by local people. Additional construction was done to expand the clinic facilities.

Medical Missionaries is an impressive organization that not only provides medical care through its Clinic in Haiti, but provides medicines and supplies to those in need throughout the world, including sending supplies for disaster relief in the USA. Not only that, it's a totally volunteer organization! The doctors, nurses, and others, donate their time and skills to make this work possible!

Medical Missionaries has been successful in establishing a medical clinic in Thomassique, Haiti, which serves hundreds of thousands of Haitians each year. The organization has gone to great lengths to ensure that the community has access to everything from antibiotics to prenatal care, and has trained Haitians to work as doctors, nurses, and midwives. Medical Missionaries is impact-focused, stretching every resource to reach as many Haitians as possible with quality medical care.

Medical Missionaries is focused entirely on helping the poorest people in Haiti. Because of this focus, and their long history, they have been able to build healthcare resources in rural areas in a country with little access to such services. We have donated our time and money to Medical Missionaries, and know that contributions go directly to the needy in Haiti. When we were deciding which charities to give an additional donation to last Christmas, Medical Missionaries was at the top of our list.
