We are healthcare and allied professional volunteers. We consider it our duty to share our expertise with partners in need. We do so through repeated week-long medical missions to a city/ municipality in the Philippines. Our projects ensure that our partners at the target sites will be able to prevent women from dying during childbirth. Also, disease prevention will be a strong part of healthcare in their communities.

For each target municipality in the Philippines, our missions are conducted several times per year over a total period of two years, each mission lasting one to two weeks. They are carefully designed to seamlessly integrate into local conditions at the target site for maximum impact and quality care to remain beyond the 2-year period.
