Our Mission

For almost 30 years, Flying Doctors of America has been bringing together teams of physicians, dentists, nurses, and other health care professionals to care for people who would not receive medical care. We operate under the “Mother Teresa Principle,” which means we focus on the poorest of the poor, living in conditions that are difficult for most Americans to imagine. When they know that someone cares enough to come to them a spark of hope flares up for those who live in an otherwise hopeless situation.

With Flying Doctors, everybody wins. The medical team misses only a few days of work and go on the trip of a lifetime. Our support volunteers come to serve as translators, team leaders, photographers and healthcare assistants. Financial sponsors, both individual and corporate, have the knowledge that their dollars are making a real difference in the world.
