"One doesn't ask of one who suffers: What is your country and what is your religion? One merely says, you suffer, this is enough, you belong to me and I shall help you."
WHAT WE DO
It starts with the will to make a difference.
Mobile Medics International is a 501(C)3 non-profit, volunteer organization that provides medical care to victims of natural disaster and humanitarian crises.
We were founded to provide basic healthcare to those who may not be able to access medical facilities in a disaster or those who are medically underserved.
As our name implies, we are a mobile team that specializes in reaching patients in remote areas. From weather-related catastrophes to refugee crises worldwide, our volunteers are ready to respond and help those affected.
We achieve this goal by bringing together highly qualified medical personnel from all over the world.
No one at Mobile Medics International receives a salary, so 100% of our donations go towards helping those in need.
