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:

  • Support our Fundraiser Raffle (Drawing takes place December 29) First prize: a trip to Ireland for 2 which is exchangeable, second prize: 2 night stay in a Middleburg, VA spa, and third prize: 2 tickets to a 2015 Redskins home game.Only 800 tickets will be sold. Buy yours now.

  • Medical Missionaries' Caring Hearts Ball, our major fundraising gala, will be held April 18, 2015.  (More information to follow.)

  • The sixth Medical Missions In The Developing World conference sponsored by Medical Missionaries will be held at George Mason University, Manassas Campus, on November 13-15, 2015.

Bless you and your families for your continued support that allows us to carry out all these projects to help The Poorest of the Poor.

Gilbert R Irwin, MD
President, Medical Missionaries
