Our philosophy is that access to basic human necessities including clean water, food, shelter, clothing, and medical care should not be complicated or difficult! There are enough resources to go around, and we plan to start by helping one person, one family, one community at a time. As the ripples grow from the drops of one good deed at a a time, we believe we can change the world for the better!
We have largely medical and construction backgrounds as a group. On our first international mission trip, we built a home for a family, visited the maternity & pediatric hospital, and ran a free medical clinic for several remote villages. The family who received the home we built had been living with other family members--nine people in an approximately 15' x 15' shelter.
Visiting the hospital in Tegucigalpa, Honudras was truly heart-breaking. The poorest in America can still go to a hospital and get standardized, clean, quality healthcare. These mothers and children were in pitiful conditions without privacy, care, or even air-conditioning in the heat of a central-America summer.
The medical clinic we hosted in El Tizate, Honduras, served three small villages. People were waiting in line before daybreak with their children and families. Patients waited for HOURS just for multivitamins as illness and death related to malnutrition are a tremendous threat to their children. We also enjoy helping with free medical clinics in our home, Bremen, Georgia.
