Medical Ministry International

Compassion is an integral part of everything we do because we strive to be the Hands and Feet of God.  Jesus provided the perfect example of selfless love and compassion, and it is through this example we conduct our services.  “I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.”  (John 13:15)

What We Do

Our Strategy to Healthcare Development
Establishing and supporting Health Care Centers in developing countries with the goal of increasing access to affordable, quality health care. As health care centers grow, they become largely self-supporting, in which case we assist with specific needs for land, buildings, renovations, and equipment, as able.

Facilitating 1 and 2-week Project Teams that work alongside our in-country Project Directors and facilities to build medical capacity for the long term. Project Teams are planned in response to local health care needs, following an invitation from the local community. We often partner with local churches.

Support Residency Training and Fellowship Programs for medical professionals to expand the skills of international doctors.We seek to establish medical platforms for service and education that build medical capacity for those that need it most. We endeavor to establish long term programs and facilities that address these needs.

We ask the patients to invest in their care. When they do, they follow the doctor’s orders and treat the medicine, equipment, etc. they receive well. We don’t want to create a paternalistic, dependence mentality.
