READY TO REGISTER for a 2020 medical mission?
Most people who live in garbage dump communities have never seen a doctor.
That’s why International Samaritan hosts 2-4 medical missions per year, spread out from the beginning of Spring through the Fall season. On our missions, we spend a week in-country, providing full-day medical clinics to the communities free of charge. Our medical missions provide general medicine as well as dental, optical, and pharmaceutical care.
We need all kinds of medical professionals.
Regardless of if you’re an internist, surgeon, pediatrician, dentist, dental assistant, pharmacist, nurse, medical assistant, or any other kind of medical professional – your help is valuable. Additionally, for all medical professionals, up to 100% of trip costs are tax deductible.
We need more than just doctors.
For every one medical professional, we need two non-medical volunteers. Any person who is 18 or older, or any person younger than 18 who is accompanied by an adult, is welcome to be part of a medical mission, regardless of medical experience.
Medical Missions don’t just change their lives – The change yours, too.
Many of the medical professionals and volunteers on our missions are repeat attendees because their experience in these communities impacts them so much. Below are some of the testimonials of previous attendees:
Medical Missions like this allow you to come home and look at your own patients a different way. I think it’s very rewarding, both personally and professionally.Dr. Harry Carr, M.D.
