We are a branch of the American Diplomatic Mission of International Relations IGO. Our purpose is to fight for human rights and for world peace, we work in cooperation with governments, churches, synagogues, medical and student movements.
Since we first began our work in the work, United Nations Medical Mission Corps has helped tens of millions of people in over 70 countries, delivering emergency relief and training valued at more than millions people .
A preeminent First Responder, we provide emergency relief often within hours to those hit by disaster, no matter where they are, no matter what the conditions. Our teams have responded to a roll call of major crises for more than the last 20 years, including South America, Afghanistan, Rwanda, the Balkans, Darfur, Haiti, Japan, Iraq, Syria, the Philippines, West Africa and Nepal. In many of these places we remain, helping communities along the path from relief to self-reliance.
United Nations Medical Corps Mission supports those in over 40 countries that are hit by adversity, working with them to recover, rebuild and gain the skills and tools to become self-reliant.
We assist those in the world’s poorest countries, often partnering with national and local leaders, to provide better health care and related services in vulnerable communities looking to build a better life for their people.
We are there for hundreds of thousands of displaced people, many of whom have lost everything and survive by clinging to all that’s left: hope. We are there too for those who face less visible but equally acute emergencies such as malnutrition, the lack of clean water or a complicated child-birth. We work with partner agencies and local leaders to provide a broad array of services,often focusing on children and women with programs that improve maternal and child health and nutrition, provide for psychosocial needs and prevent gender-based violence.
Once urgent needs are met, we help communities in crisis-prone areas prepare in advance to withstand disaster should it come.
