Medical Missionaries, a 501(c)(3) company, 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. 

One area of focus has been along the Haiti-Dominican Republic border. In Thomassique, Haiti, we have built and support St. Joseph Clinic (hospital), the first medical facility in this region of more than 125,000 people.


Medical Missionaries, Inc. is listed on GuideStar as a reputable and trustworthy organization to donate to.
