MED 4 OUR WORLD started as a shared dream between Dr. Christine Brody, an ObGyn physician, and Valishia Chapman who had traveled to the Casa Bernabe orphanage in Nicaragua in early 2010. Their desire to help not only the kids but the entire community around them spurred the first medical mission later that year to the El Samaritano Clinic. From there the dream grew to return with larger and more diverse teams to attend to the various needs of the orphanage and the local community. MED 4 OUR WORLD has now expanded its surgical mission trips to Fiji, including a hospital renovation team.
Each trip includes volunteer physicians, nurses and many other medical and non-medical people who have come together through a special bond and desire to help those in this world who have limited access to health care.
