Our mission is to help families achieve greater 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.
What our organization does is two-fold: we fundraise a certain goal a year to help build permanent schools and clinics in Ecuador, Peru, and the Amazon, along with funding our own brigades of students along with physicians to set up temporary clinics and visit patients in these places. In the places that we go, our medical care and education is probably the only form of healthcare these patients will be seeing all year. This is why we work so hard to help to establish a more stable system of healthcare and education in these impoverished areas around the world.
