How can I Help?
The costs to undertake a medical mission in a foreign country are considerable but bring great
satisfaction to participants and supporters. All members of the team volunteer not only their
time but also finance their own travel, accommodation and food while participating in the
However, there are many other costs to such a venture – medications, surgical supplies (sutures, mesh, dressings, etc.), anaesthesia supplies (oxygen masks, circuits for anesthesia machines, sterile gowns for working inside the operating rooms, sterile drapes for surgical procedures, and other costs. In addition, our teams pay the hospitals a fee for each surgical procedure to assist in any costs incurred (hospital staff, patient overnights stays, oxygen, intravenous fluids, etc.).
So you can see that it is an expensive undertaking! Every dollar donated to Medicos en Accion goes directly to patient care. There are no administrative costs to this organization. Being a charitable organization, our financial accounting with Revenue Canada is available as public record.
