When our medical/dental team was in Sri Lanka in 2012 an elderly woman stumbled into our clinic. Suffering from severe asthma, she had recently run out of her medications. She collapsed before our very eyes. If it weren’t for our clinic, she would have died that day.
It’s because of patients like this that we feel called to provide medical and dental care around the world through hospitals, clinics and short-term outreaches. That care can give people a brighter future, without having to worry if basic ailments will take the lives of their loved ones. Over the years, we’ve had the privilege of providing this care to more than 1 million patients worldwide!
Our desire is to travel to the places where people need the most urgent care. This often sends us to some pretty remote locations, but the result is vital care that is literally saving lives.
YOU CAN HELP: If you’re a medical professional, you can join us on a medical/dental outreach.
