The goal of our medical missionary team is to provide health careservices to poverty stricken families in the Mexico and 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 non-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.
