Upcoming Project Teams

Canadian & Intls: Please view the Project Team Schedule with $CAD Fundraising Goals here.

Medical Ministry International facilitates 1 and 2-week Project Teams with international volunteer participants to build medical capacity for the long term. Project Teams are planned by our in-country Project Directors in response to local health care needs, following an invitation from the local community. We often partner with local churches.

Medical Ministry International encourages applications from volunteers around the world on project teams. Upon acceptance, all participants of a Project Team are expected to serve using their given skill sets and contribute to the programs of Medical Ministry International in a developing country.

For more information about each Project Team and the communities we serve, click on the name of the country below.

Funding model for Project Teams

All participants are expected to fundraise on behalf of Medical Ministry International to help raise the funds necessary to cover the budgeted costs of the Project Teams. Medical Ministry International’s costs per team vary significantly based on the project location, the remoteness of the project site, duration and size of the project, currency exchange rates, and more. The fundraising goal per team is shown below, along with the minimum fundraising goal for each team member.

Medical Ministry International’s costs to carry out our charitable programs include airfare expenses and other travel expenses required for team members to arrive at the project site. Because these costs for airfare vary significantly based on the project location, location of team members, and time of year, fundraising goals for airfare are not included in the funding amounts below. The minimum fundraising goal to cover airfare-related expenses will be communicated to participants closer to the project date.

According to IRS Publication 526, “Generally, you can claim a charitable contribution deduction for travel expenses necessarily incurred while you are away from home performing services for a charitable organization only if there is no significant element of personal pleasure, recreation, or vacation in the travel.”  This applies whether or not the trip expenses are billed directly to a participant’s credit card. Team members may choose to fundraise donations to Medical Ministry International and be reimbursed for expenses to participate on the Project Team. Resources to assist in fundraising efforts can be found here.
