The PROGRAM Our mission is to help families achieve freedom from the constraints of poverty, empowering them to live healthier lives. Our patients did not choose to be poor, but they have chosen to strive toward a better life; MEDLIFE stands beside them in this pursuit. We aim to achieve this goal through partnering with motivated individuals in poor communities working to improve their access to MEDs: Medicine, Education and community Development. MEDLIFE believes access to quality healthcare is a basic human right. To this end, we commit our time, resources, knowledge and hope to bring Medicine, Education and Development to Low Income Families Everywhere.
Schoolkids donâ€™t want the volunteers to leave.
Volunteers assist in a Mobile Clinic.
We want to provide students with real-life, hands-on experience working with poor and underserved populations and to provide them an opportunity to reflect on the root causes and implications of poverty. Through this process of reflection the Mission Fund seeks to promote a realization toward an individualâ€™s ability to positively affect the lives of people living in poverty through pragmatic empathy and life-long engagement.
