There are several ways to get involved and contribute to the important International humanitarian aid that Medicine in Action is providing to underdeveloped countries. First, you can donate money. Monetary donations are always appreciated. Almost all of your donations will reach the patients. We keep overhead costs very low since our volunteers pay their own way to participate in the missions. If you are a corporation or a business, please visit our Corporate Sponsorship page. Whether you are a corporation, foundation or an individual, you can donate to the Patient Care Fund or to the Sugar Scholars program which will pay for medical students so that they can develop global sensitivity by going on medical mission trips to underdeveloped countries.
Or perhaps you would like to join us on a medical mission as a volunteer. We welcome all volunteers whether or not they have medical experience. This medical volunteer opportunity includes volunteer doctors and other medical and non-medical volunteers. . Everyone has something to contribute. We ask for a $600 donation from all first-time physician volunteers, $400 for non-physicians and $100 for medical students, residents and returning volunteers. Add some time to your trip and enjoy the beauty of these countries by touring them after the mission.
Lastly, you can donate medical supplies, equipment or airline miles. We welcome in-kind donations which help us on our medical mission trips. We appreciate all of our donors.
