Who We Are
We are an international, faith-based NGO providing long-term, co-operative, medical and development aid to communities affected by poverty and unequal access to healthcare.
For over a century, we have worked to strengthen and support communities through healthcare programs and initiatives, the distribution of medicines and medical supplies, and the placement of volunteers.
As part of our new global strategic platform, we are focusing on women's and children's health. With partners, we are delivering sustainable health services in targeted communities within Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean.
We Live to Serve Others
Our team of dedicated people care for and love their communities 24/7. They go above and beyond every day, sharing their time, limited resources, training and experience so others can lead healthier lives.
Where We Work
Our reach is global and extends to some of the most remote and underserved corners of the world. We have inspiring, courageous staff at our field offices in Haiti, Kenya, Peru, South Sudan and Zambia.
