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 provide supplies and disaster relief to those in need in the USA and worldwide.

Results: Medical Missionaries built and supports St. Joseph Clinic in Thomassique, Haiti (opened in 2007). Elsewhere, Medical Missionaries has also provided supplies to those in need in the USA and worldwide. Through 2017, we have sent 173 sea containers of supplies worldwide, supported 30 local health groups, made over 300 trips to West Virginia, Appalachia, and American Indian reservations in the Midwest. We sent disaster relief for victims of hurricanes, floods and tornadoes in the US (including Florida, Texas, New Jersey, Mississippi, & Louisiana).

Target demographics: Helping those in need in the USA, Haiti, and throughout the world

Programs: St. Joseph Clinic (opened in 2007) treats about 25,000 villagers who would not otherwise have access to even basic medical care. Programs provide maternal & infant care, vaccinations, school lunches, fight childhood malnutrition, provide water purification systems, and visiting teams providing medical/surgical care. Elsewhere, Medical Missionaries has also provided supplies to those in need in the USA and worldwide.

I began volunteering with (and donating to) Medical Missionaries five years ago. In that time I've seen thousands of people receive medical visits, medicines, food, clean water, medical supplies, other material needs, love and caring. The organization is uncommonly committed to making sure every possible dollar goes to helping the poorest of the poor in the world. That makes it harder to run the organization (with an all volunteer staff), but far more beneficial to the poor and sick in the world than most larger, paid professional-staffed charities.

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.
