Mission Details : MMI’s work in Colombia and the Amazon Region began in 2004. Project teams in Colombia aim to provide basic primary care and dental care in the Amazon Region, as well as specialized vision services. Vision care projects are focused in urban areas, and include opportunities for local medical personnel to receive training. These large projects typically see a high volume of patients seeking a wide range medical services. The MMI team will provide screenings, exams, dispense eyeglasses, laser treatments, prostheses, pterygia, glaucoma, cataract & phaco, strabismus surgeries, and more to help the municipality deal with the need for these services. This will also provide patient the opportunity to have access to a surgery in their own community for an affordable cost. There will also be a Dental component to the project. Participants are expected to fundraise on behalf of Medical Ministry International to help raise the funds necessary to cover the budgeted costs of the Project Teams. These fundraising goal minimums include accommodations, meals, travel insurance, and malpractice insurance. Air fare is not included. We have implemented rigorous biosafety, patient management, and project team safety protocols in response to COVID-19. Agreement to follow protocols will be required as part of the online application process. Project planning is ongoing for all 2021 programs. Project status will be confirmed 90 days prior to departure based on current information as Medical Ministry International monitors the global impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
