  • Invite local and international physicians to participate in medical missions, teach basic and advanced first aid, and to provide other needed medical needs;
  • Assist in the furnishing and maintenance of medical clinics and school structures;
  • Assist in the purchase and provision of supplies for students and schools-in-need
