Blessings International has provided pharmaceuticals to thousands of traveling medical teams going to more than 140 different nations since the ministry was created in 1981. In recent years, we’ve shipped an average of 250,000 lbs of medicines a year. Blessings continues to equip an upward of 3,000 teams traveling around the world each year. Among those teams equipped are those that are the first to arrive, assess and bring care to victims of such events as earthquakes, hurricanes, floods, famines and even wars.
Through the donations that Blessings receives, we are also able to help subsidize the medical costs for these emergency teams working in disaster zones as well as for teams working in indigent medical clinics in the USA. Countless numbers of lives have been saved because of medicines that Blessings has made available at low or subsidized costs.
Additionally, the medical personnel including teams of doctors, nurses, dentists, as well as, non-medically trained individuals including clergy, volunteer and professional aid workers have carried Blessings’ medicines to remote locales along with bringing the love and good news of Christ to those who have received medical care.
