Tanzania is a beautiful country, home to the Serengeti, Zanzibar and Kilimanjaro. Unfortunately, however, Tanzania is also a country of extreme poverty. Citizens of Tanzania, live in a medical climate plagued by a constant dearth of resources. Access to hospitals and/or services may sometimes require travel by foot for hours.
Jamaica is well known throughout the Caribbean for its beauty and for its tropical serenity. As a tourist location, its beaches and landscape offer vast visual pleasure. Violence, however, creates a strong undercurrent and is unfortunately, a common way of life for adults and for children alike.
In the future, Medicine in Action hopes to add more missions to more countries that are in need.
