Medical Missionaries seeks to improve healthcare for the poor in the USA and elsewhere in the world.
These are some of the main regions we serve:
Providing Aid and Disaster Relief in the USA
Missionaries sends items including medical equipment, clothing, health and household supplies to those in need in the USA,
primarily in the Virginia/DC area, West Virginia, Appalachia, and Indian Reservations in Oklahoma and South Dakota.
Medical Missionaries responds to Disaster Relief needs wherever they occur. We
have sent disaster relief supplies for victims of hurricanes, floods and tornadoes, most recently in Florida (Hurricane Irma,
2017), Texas (Hurricane Harvey, 20017), the Jersey Shore (Hurricane Sandy, 2012), and Louisiana (Hurricane Katrina, 2009).

International Disaster Relief and Shipments of Medical Supplies
Missionaries also works with partner groups to send medicines, medical supplies and medical equipment to help build healthcare
infrastructure in some of the poorest countries throughout the world, and also provide disaster relief supplies.
2017, we have sent 173 sea containers of health equipment and supplies to help those in need in 37 countries in Africa, the
Middle East, and the Caribbean. Our volunteers secure supplies, sort and prepare them for shipment, and load the sea containers.

In Haiti – St. Joseph Clinic
An area of focus has
been along the Haiti-Dominican Republic border. In 2007, Medical Missionaries built a state-of-the-art clinic (hospital) that
serves not only the residents of Thomassique, but all 125,000 residents of the region.
St. Joseph Clinic is staffed
by Haitian medical professionals. Teams of doctors and nurses from the U.S. visit the clinic several times each year to assist
with special procedures and to provide professional development for the Haitian staff.
Clinic programs have grown
to not only provide basic medical care, but to improve maternal and infant care, overcome childhood malnutrition, provide
vaccinations to prevent disease, and encourage the use of safe water purification systems.
