WHEN
Jun 5 2021 - Jun 12 2021
WHERE
Montemorelos, MX
MMI’s work in Mexico began in the 1970’s. In addition to the 1 and 2-week projects taking place, MMI also supports the development of four health centers committed to serving the people of Mexico.

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. The team will be staffed with North American volunteers, MMI Mexico, and involve local staff.

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.
