If we remember that knowledge empowers, medicine heals, and faith invigorates, we can boldly break barriers to health. Here are 18 ways we will work to keep the world healthy in 2018.
"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. The organization has a profound impact on improving the health of our communities – both locally and globally – and the impact they’re making is both tangible and far-reaching."
"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.”
