Loving the Vulnerable

In our broken world, so many people are suffering. They are pushed to the margins and forgotten. Men, women and children are persecuted and left without homes. They are hurting, sick and in crisis.

God calls us to love the vulnerable, to dare to love like Jesus. He uses us to provide those in crisis with protection and care.

We work to restore health as the first step to restoring hope. Because every person deserves the chance for a better life. Every person deserves the chance for health and wholeness.

Experts in Disaster Response

For 40 years, Medical Teams has provided life-saving medical care where it’s needed most. 

Bangladesh, children and mothers in the settlement, 2018Since 1979, we’ve provided life-saving medical care for people in crisis, including survivors of the Rwandan genocide, the South Asia tsunami in 2004, Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and the 2010 Haiti earthquake. In 1989, we launched a Mobile Dental Program, providing free dental care to people in need right in our neighborhoods.

With our history and experience, we’ve grown into our role as experts in disaster response – disasters that are both natural and manmade. Right now, we’re responding on many fronts to the largest refugee crisis the world has ever known.

Our staff and volunteers care for the hurting in frontline clinics, refugee camps and remote villages. In places where mothers and babies are dying. Where outbreaks threaten to overtake entire communities. Where local health systems are overwhelmed or non-existent.

We are a highly-regarded humanitarian relief agency – known internationally and locally for our expertise in refugee health caredisaster relief and mobile dental programs.
