Medical Missionaries is a volunteer group of more than 200 doctors, nurses, dentists, and others who work to improve the health of the poor in the U.S. and throughout the world. We provide medical care and medical supplies, clothing and food to the areas we serve.
One area of focus has been along the Haiti-Dominican Republic border. We built and support a clinic (hospital) in Thomassique, Haiti. Volunteer medical and surgical teams make numerous trips during the course of a year to provide medical care. We also have programs to provide potable water, overcome childhood malnutrition, provide vaccinations to prevent disease.
We also send medicines to medical teams serving throughout the world, sea containers of medical supplies and equipment to Haiti/Dominican Republic and Africa, and clothing and supplies to those in need in the U.S. (primarily Northern Virginia, The District of Columbia, Appalachia, and Indian Reservations).

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit
Medical Missionaries sends sea containers of medical supplies, medical equipment, food, and clothing to the poor in 8 to 10 countries each year. In 2007, Medical Missionaries opened a clinic/hospital in Thomassique, Haiti, the first permanent medical facility in this area of about 125,000 residents. The clinic is staffed by 29 Haitian doctors, nurses, midwives, technicians, and support people, and is fully supported by Medical Missionaries. Visiting teams of U.S. medical specialists travel to the clinic about 4 times a year to treat difficult cases and to provide professional development to the Haitian staff. The clinic serves about 25,000 to 30,000 patients each year.
We address some of the underlying causes of common illnesses treated at the clinic through programs providing vaccinations, potable water, and treating childhood malnutrition. Assistance from a foundation has allowed us to set up Community Health Centers in outlying villages in the Thomassique region (Haiti), to bring health care closer to where the villagers live.
During 2013, Medical Missionaries sent 1,000 packages of medicines to medical teams serving throughout the world, made over 25 supply trips to Appalachia and Oklahoma, distributed clothes, supplies and equipment locally, sent several containers of supplies to Africa and to Haiti/Dominican Republic, and disaster relief supplies to the victims of the typhoon in the Philippines.
