MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Our Medical Missions programs bring nurses and physicians that volunteer their time to countries of desperate need. Many times after a natural disaster or even in just poverty struck areas people do not have access to quality healthcare. We try to change that!
EDUCATION & OUTREACH
IMPACT WITH HOPE & partners provides urgent medical care to victims of armed conflict, brings emergency relief in the aftermath of natural or man-made disasters and fights deadly epidemics. When emergencies occur, IMPACT WITH HOPE relies on your support to respond quickly and start saving lives. You help us provide impartial emergency assistance when a disaster hits. We contact our partners where the disaster occurs and ask the question – how can we serve you? Often we are asked for volunteer physicians, nurses, and dentists. Medical volunteers are asked to fill out applications, sign waiver liability forms, have travel insurance and current licenses.
In addition, IMPACT WITH HOPE requires all medical volunteers to raise support when they travel with our medical teams These funds are used for expenses related to serving others – travel, room & board, licensers, immunizations and visas – so by donating to our Medical Missions, you are helping doctors, nurses and dentist provide hope and healing to those in need.
If you would like to donate to a specific Medical Mission, or have a specific person you would like to sponsor, just contact us.
Contributions are solicited with the understanding that IMPACT WITH HOPE has complete discretion and control over the use of all donated funds.
The charity will attempt to honor gifts preferenced to support particular heath care providers but the final decision on the use of all funds rests with the charity.
