Chosen International Medical Assistance
Chosen International Medical Assistance began with Richard Love traveled to a Korean Hospital as a volunteer in missions. While in Korea, Dick’s eyes were opened to the desperate circumstances under which medical missionaries labor. As an employee of a major manufacturer of operating room and sterilization equipment, he began exploring possibilities to remedy those deplorable conditions. Deciding equipment trade ins and items rendered obsolete by american technology would be priceless in less affluent societies, he began the effort that has shipped equipment to Christian healthcare facilities in 110 Nations.
Working to advanced healthcare in economically deprived countries, Chosen has shipped millions of dollars worth of new and remanufactured medical equipment to medical mission facilities. Additionally, volunteers and staff have traveled the world installing and repairing equipment, developing and teaching training programs in equipment operation and maintenance procedures and providing instruction in operating room procedures, infection control and sterilization and hostile environments
Chosen also coordinates short-term medical mission trips. We send teams to places that have received our equipment and seek out ways to make an even bigger impact for the kingdom in these communities.
We offer one and two-week medical missions to Yucatan Mexico throughout the year. Two-week projects in February, June, and October. Physicians, surgeons, ophthalmology, OB/GYN, nurses, O.R. Techs, eye care, dentists and “general helpers” needed. High-school age are welcome (or younger if participating with parents).
