President’s Message – December 2014
It's been a busy
year for the volunteers of Medical Missionaries. With the world in such turmoil, both the volunteers and those who support
Medical Missionaries will be encouraged to know that you are making a positive difference for many people throughout the world.
From the hamlets of Appalachia, to the Indian reservations of South Dakota, to
the Ebola tragedy in West Africa, Medical Missionaries has reached out to those in need. We have once again been awarded a
USAID food grant to supply daily meals for remote villages around Banica and Pedro Santana, Dominican Republic. We also continue
to support our 24/7 hospital in Thomassique, Haiti, which is on track to treat more than 27,000 patients this year.
All these programs are accomplished with minimal overhead; 99.5% of every dollar donated goes
directly to support a project. Please see the details on all our programs on this website. Also, keep in mind the following important dates:
