We are a small independent fish in a great NGO pond. Though we partner with many other NGOs to accomplish mission objectives, we are not directly or financially affiliated with any specific organization or denomination. Our small size and independence allows us to react quickly, with great freedom and flexibility, to wherever The Call may lead. We couldn’t accomplish this without our most cherished resource: Our faithful donors and great pool of medical and non-medical volunteers of all backgrounds, professions, experiences and risk tolerance levels.
The Call is never static and has taken us to some of the most exotic, remote and unexpected places on the planet. Many of these missions have pushed us beyond comfort zones and, from time to time, beyond the scope of medicine and dentistry.
There is a never-ending need and no time to waste. Therefore, we seek to be on mission with volunteers and partners who "play well with others" so we can "take up the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow, heal the sick, feed the hungry and bind up the brokenhearted." We are not reckless or naive vis-a-vis the dangers of some of our missions, we understand and accept the risk as we act in obedience to God’s Call.
If your first question is "Is it safe?", our missions are not for you.
Faith without works is dead. (James 2:26)
We didn't come to watch.
