We have seen desperate poverty this year. Delivering food to an elderly man in Appalachia, we saw a man who was chopping up the floorboards of his home for heat. This is just one of the sad and heartbreaking examples of the poverty our Medical Missionaries volunteers witness daily.
Medical Missionaries, a non-profit organization, is a volunteer group of more than 200 doctors, nurses, dentists, and others who work to improve the health of the poorest 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.
This video, produced to celebrate our 20th anniversary in 2017, features interviews with our founder Dr. Gil Irwin, and numerous doctors, nurses, and other volunteers who share their time and skills to serve the poor
