2015 has been an exciting year of renewal for Medical Ministry International Canada (MMI Canada), located in Stoney Creek, Ontario. Since October 2014, MMI Canada has not been affiliated with Medical Ministry International in the USA. For the past year, we have been collaborating directly with our international locations and planning opportunities to serve in response to identified needs in local areas. MMI Canada is currently responding to the requests of project directors to ensure projects continue without interruption, following the recent announcement that MMI USA is ceasing operations.
MMI Canada is called to bring spiritual and compassionate health care in this world of need. To that end, we have established suitable agreements with individuals and organizations with whom we are directly partnering.
For our American friends, in January 2015, we established a co-sponsor relationship between the programs of MMI Canada and I Care San Antonio (ICSA) Global Missions. ICSA, a 501(c)3 in the USA, has been a supporter of our project teams for over 20 years. We were pleased to formalize our relationship to ensure Americans can participate on projects and financially support international partners, programs, and capital projects while receiving a tax receipt in accordance with the regulations of the IRS. To learn more about ICSA, see their website at http://www.icare-sa.org/global.
MMI Canada currently has over 50 project team opportunities for 2016 listed on our website.
- Canadians visit: http://www.mmicanada.ca/projects-cad/
- Americans visit: http://www.mmicanada.ca/projects-usd/.
roject dates and locations will continue to be added as we finalize details. You will see in this email the locations of our upcoming opportunities complete with photos of those who will be leading these teams. MMI Canada’s agreements will ensure that funding for project teams, international partners, programs and capital projects will be forwarded to designated countries and partners in a timely manner.
MMI Canada continues to serve some of the neediest people in our world. We can make a difference together! Canadians and Americans can donate now at http://www.mmicanada.ca/donate-cad/ or http://www.mmicanada.ca/donate-usd/.
