Around the world, YOU are providing medical aid in remote and poor communities that lack access to even the most basic medical care. By partnering with Operation Blessing, you are saving lives and showing God’s love—bringing hope and healing to the sick.
Operation Blessing partners with pharmaceutical companies and local hospitals to maximize our ability to provide the medicine, care and treatment that patients from poor and remote communities need.
Through medical and dental brigades, medicine distribution, community health volunteers, ultrasound and women’s health programs, and life-changing surgeries, you are offering love and dignity to those who are suffering. Not only that, but you’re also helping to identify and treat major health issues and saving lives! Between January and September 2019, you provided over 1,900 life-changing surgeries!
Medical & Dental Brigades
In areas where health care isn’t readily available or affordable, you provide physical care through medical and dental brigades. Medical and dental professionals treat sickness, injuries and dental problems, distribute much needed medications and offer referrals. Through these brigades you are meeting desperate needs in rural communities. You send hope and healing, enabling patients to pursue brighter and healthier futures.
When corporations donate medicines, vitamins, medical supplies and more, you help us collect, transport and distribute these gifts. Through medical “gifts-in-kind,” together we’re able to offer much-needed medication and supplies to clinics and hospitals in poor areas, allowing them to give quality care to patients and much-needed medicines at no cost.
Community Health Volunteers
Your support allows Operation Blessing to train Community Health Volunteers to serve as front line health promoters in remote villages where medical care is hard to reach, bringing vital help and information to those in need. In poor, rural communities, these volunteers can provide lifesaving basic care and health education to locals for injuries, illness, pregnancy and more. You also equip these CHVs with first aid kits and other basic medical supplies to share with the community as a whole.
Providing life-changing surgery is an essential part of the international medical relief outreach you make possible. Whether it’s a surgery for cleft lips and palates, clubfoot, orthopedic issues, eyesight, burns, or even repairing a hole in a child’s heart, you are changing, and even saving, lives. Thanks to your generous support, our worldwide medical program brings healing to those who can’t afford the surgeries they so desperately need. View our current line up of surgery patients.
Often the best treatment for disease is prevention. Operation Blessing friends like you make possible classes in hygiene, health, dental care and nutrition around the world. You send healthy meals to school children in need. Thanks to your compassionate donations, patients receive vital health screenings like ultrasounds and cervical cancer testing, as well as screening for issues like diabetes and high blood pressure. You are also combating mosquito borne illnesses such as chikungunya, dengue, malaria, and Zika in places like Honduras and Kenya through preventative community health programs.
