"Without the medicine, we would not be talking as we are now. And I think about this: that the medicine is coming from people I did not know. This is a miracle that comes from God. And it shows that God is real, and that He is here to help me. And so now, I no longer feel that I am alone."
"MTI has developed the expertise to assess the greatest needs. It takes manpower, and it certainly takes dollars …. As I came to understand that my community wasn’t just where I lived and worked, but that it was the world, I believe I am fulfilling why I’m here.”
"As a values-driven company focused on continuous innovation, Cambia is proud to partner with Medical Teams International.

"I’m grateful for the help because before I could not smile or talk well because of the pain of my teeth and now, thanks to your help, I feel much better. I feel more sure of myself because a smile is the most beautiful (part) of a person. Many, many thanks for the help."
"Volunteering allowed me to develop relationships with community members who are the most closely impacted by MTI’s work. I got to be on the end where I saw the funding move into change.”
