Each project consists of a unique team. Together, all the members bring different specialties, skills, and gifts, and when combined will bring about great impact in the lives of others and your own. We ask for your patience and flexibility as you travel, learn, and serve with the group.
This page of resources is applicable for most projects teams. For country specific information including entry/exit requirements, immunizations, air travel and accommodations, please see the ‘Countries’ drop down from the navigation bar at the top of the website. You will receive specific details about your own project via email prior to your departure.
Resources for Project Participants
Emergency Evacuation Insurance & Basic Out of Country Medical Insurance
Medical Ministry International purchases an emergency evacuation policy with basic out of country medical insurance for all participants for the duration of the project. The costs are included in the quoted Project Participation Donation. We recommend you review the details of the Gallaghers Insurance Policy and purchase additional medical coverage, if you desire.
We are pleased to provide malpractice insurance for all those accepted to participate on a project team. The costs are included in the quoted Project Participation Donation.
All funds received by Medical Ministry International are charitable donations which may be directed to the fundraising efforts of a specific Project Team or Program. Although Medical Ministry International will track the fundraising efforts of individuals, all donations are made to support a Project Team.
In the event of cancellation by a participant or by Medical Ministry International, donations may be re-directed to support a future project team within one year, a country-specific need, or the greatest need of the organization.

Knitted Dolls (see Knitted Doll Pattern)
School supplies (pencils, erasers, pens, stickers, etc.)
