NGO Overview, Mission, and Purpose: What We Are About and Who We Help

The main focus of Light House Medical Missions is to provide free medical care to the countries of Cambia, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Burundi, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Every spring and fall we assemble different groups of volunteers to travel to one of these countries on a ten day medical missions trip to help heal some of the poorest people in the world. In addition to free medical care, Light House Medical Missions have started water drilling projects and construction of schools and churches in order to further help develop the countries to which we travel.



NGO "Bottom Line": How Me Make an Impact

Light House Medical Missions makes an impact by providing free medical care to some of the poorest countries in the world, where for the most part medical care is non-existent. By running this clinic for seven days, our medical teams are able to treat an average of 4,000 people per trip.




NGO Organization Details and Location: Headquarters and Global Outreach

Lighthouse Handout!

Our first ever team was sent to Gambia in 1998, we have no standing president nor any location. All our team leaders are doctors who host the informational meetings in their homes and all of whom have been to Africa at least six times, these team leaders work together to keep our organization running smoothly and effectively.





NGO Job Openings: Who, Why, Where, When, and for How Much?

All of our positions are volunteer, we have no paid positions in our organization, as for the positions you can volunteer to fill positions such as assistant to a nurse, a scribe, a doctors assistant, crowd control aid, or a pharmacy aid but those are more for unprofessional's (I.E Highschool Students). As for professionals we have taken everyone from teachers and police officers to doctors and dentists, no matter what your job is there will be some kindof need for your profession on our tea and in Africa.





Why You Should Join Us...

Light House Medical Missions is the perfect opportunity for you to experience what it is like working in the third world. If you are thinking about going to some of the larger NGO's such as Doctors Without Borders but are not quite sure if you are cut out for it, we provide you the opportunity to experience more or less what you would be doing with Doctors Without Borders, albeit with a shorter time span. Or even if you are just looking to do some good over your spring break and want to help out those who live in some of the most desperate situations in the world, we would be more than happy to have you as part of one of our team.
