Serving with World Medical Mission

World Medical Mission was established in 1977 to assist general surgeons who wanted to volunteer for short-term mission trips. Today, hundreds of volunteer Christian healthcare professionals serve in overseas mission hospitals and clinics. We also ship critically needed medical equipment and supplies and send our biomedical technicians to install, repair, and maintain the equipment at these facilities. As doctors work to save lives, they bring the Good News of eternal life through the Great Physician, Jesus Christ.

World Medical Mission believes in treating the whole person. Our two-fold purpose is to minister to the physical needs of the sick and suffering while sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ.

As the medical arm of Samaritan’s Purse, we place volunteer Christian physicians, dentists, and other medical personnel in mission hospitals and clinics around the world. We also staff a biomedical department and warehouse that provides critically needed medical equipment and supplies to medical mission facilities.
