The goal of our medical missionary team is to provide health care services to poverty stricken families in Mexico and in Central/South American countries. Many of the villagers are farm laborers and earn meager wages for a day’s work. Due to the remoteness and isolation, along with the lack of availability of health care services, this has created dire hardship for the people in these areas.
We travel one or two times a year with medicines, doctors, dentists, nurses, pharmacists, chiropractors, acupuncturists, physical therapists, interpreters, and medical support staff. Our trips are usually a week in length and involve setting up clinics in remote areas and ministering to small communities. A typical mission will see between 2000-3000 adults and children in 5 days. Some of these patients will travel for hours to stand in line to see a doctor.
Many times we see children that have never seen a doctor or dentist in their lives.
