Review for MEXICO MEDICAL MISSIONS, Houston, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My wife and I have been working with a variety of community development projects for the Tarahumara over the past 20 years, many in collaboration with Mexico Medical Missions. MMM has provided us with contacts, support, and community introductions that have been of invaluable assistance in our ability to productively work with Tarahumara leaders and families.

Review for MEXICO MEDICAL MISSIONS, Houston, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Mexico Medical Mission’s hospital has played a very vital role as a catalyst for many other community development efforts and ministries throughout the Tarahumara region--this can't be over emphasized. The hospital has provided stability, community support, wide recognition and prestige that opens doors in otherwise closed villages for agricultural development projects, literacy classes, linguistic studies and translation projects, village medical outreaches, small business loans, and education projects. Access into most of the Tarahumara region is difficult to gain, due to the traditional wariness of the Tarahumara people, as well as to the instability and violence presented by a dominating cartel presence. The broad respect and admiration that the hospital has earned from all provides a platform from which many other programs and ministries have been able to make marked inroads into an otherwise closed and oppressed culture.
