We address the serious unmet medical needs of people in low resource communities around the world by collecting, repairing, packaging and distributing medical supplies and equipment to hospitals and clinics around the world. While our work may sound like simple redistribution of medical things, it is so much more than that. We make a difference.

Mission Outreach has:

  • Improved healthcare quality and saved lives in more than 95 low-resource countries around the world.

  • Provided doctors, nurses, medical staff, volunteers and family caregivers with the tools necessary to provide healing, hope, and joy to people who live in areas where poverty and disease are rampant.

  • Equipped 530 medical mission organizations with medical supplies and equipment.
