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.

Medical Missionaries is an exceptional nonprofit organization focused on delivering medical supplies, household items, food, water, and many other supplies to poverty stricken regions both in the United States and abroad. The most amazing aspect about this group is that they are average, everyday people that saw an opportunity to reach out and help others by simply redistributing items that hospitals, medical offices, and individuals no longer needed. Another astonishing fact about this organization is that it is run by volunteers and 100% of monetary donations go to the poor. Not one member in the organization is paid, which highlights the organizations true goal of serving the poor of the world.

I have been a volunteer and board member with Medical Missionaries since it's onset. I think all the accomplishments, with volunteers only, is beyond amazing. Medical Missionaries built and supports a clinic in Haiti that serves over 125,00 people. We collect, sort and inventory medical supplies and equipment, clothing, and food and send this in containers around the world, mostly to countries of western Africa. We support a food pantry in Grundy, Virginia, provide medical supplies, hygiene products, clothing, and food locally and to Native American Indians. Medical Missionaries has an incredibly caring group of volunteers who donate their time, talents, and money to the organization. I am very proud to be part of the Medical Missionaries family!

I have been volunteering for Medical Missionaries for over twenty years. I have participated in numerous surgical trips, where we operate on the poorest of the poor. Had it not been for this organization these people would never get taken care of. We also provide medical supplies and equipment, medicines, food and clothing to people all around the world.

Medical Missionaries participates in many endeavors, taking care of people here in the US and in other parts of the world.

Medical Missionaries is one of the rare organizations where the donations (monetary and phyiscal items) fully reach the people who need them. I have donated many household items to this organization and everything is always welcomed and appreciated. The volunteers work hours upon hours to make sure people receive the items they need. Medical Missionaries is a small but mighty organization that truly does good for all people.

A parish member had back surgery and doing the procedure it was discovered that he had to have heart a procedure that developed into surgery. He was in need of a hospital bed that would accommodate both of his procedures. A hospital bed was required in order for him to return home. His wife called on Medical Missionaries for assistance and we responded. Two volunteers delivered the bed in time for his home coming.

I have been a volunteer with Medical Missionaries since 2015. I was introduced to the organization during a mission trip to Banica, Dominican Republic. I began volunteering to help sort clothing donations that Medical Missionaries received on a biweekly basis at their office in Manassas. In this capacity, I am able to see the good work that Medical Missionaries does in the NoVA area as well as the Appalachian regions of Virginia and West Virginia. In 2018, I had the privilege of joining one of the Medical Missionaries sponsored medical teams traveling to the DR and Haiti. I was able to participate in mobile clinics in the DR/Haiti and observe operations at St. Thomas Clinic in Thomassique, Haiti. I was and continue to be impressed by the vital and necessary services that Medical Missionaries provides to the poor and marginalized here in the United States and abroad. What is equally impressive is that Medical Missionaries provides these services with all volunteer help and minimal overhead making the most of every dollar and/or donation that is received.

I love volunteering for this organization - the volunteers are what make it! It has very little overhead so most of the donations go to those that need it the most. There are no paid positions, just good-hearted volunteers helping the poorest of the poor. The volunteers are so selfless and caring, you can't help but feel great about being around them. Additionally, I am able to get my kids involved and they feel good about helping other families

I love this all volunteer organization that meets the needs of the poorest of the poor throughout the US and overseas. Over 20 years ago, Dr. Irwin started helping in Haiti by building a clinic, providing immunizations, starting a fluoride treatment program, nutrition programs and training the local people to sustain these programs.

Locally and throughout the United States, donations of food, clothing, medical equipment, household items, books, etc., are sorted and sent to many impoverished areas. Food pantries are stocked from our donations.
We even deliver!

At Christmastime we collect and donate new and almost new toys to children that would otherwise not receive a gift.

Working with Medical Missionaries for the last 20 years has opened my eyes and heart to the poverty suffered by many. Medical Missionaries strives to alleviate this poverty, and support and improve the quality of life for many.

A quality organization of many hard working volunteers making a difference !

I have been a volunteer for the past 2 years for this outstanding organization. 100% of their funding goes to their field projects and the organization is 100% a volunteer managed program. The projects are vital to the local community as well as in the greater area, for example Southwest and West Virginia and includes support of food pantries for areas that are food insecure. Their international component includes the successful management of a hospital clinic in Haiti, as well as giving assistance during times of disaster where it is needed. The organization collects and packages medical supplies and equipment to send in sea containers to places of great need overseas. It is.a privilege to volunteer for this organization.

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.
