Our next medical mission is shaping up. We’re going to Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic, at the beginning of May, 2024. The amount of planning and coordination is astounding. We are taking 67 doctors, nurses, techs, and support staff, to the Dominican Republic. Each team must build up their supplies and equipment, most of which is shipped prior to our departure. When we do travel, we will take 30 - 40 large trunks filled with meds, supplies and equipment.
“Arrive at the airport no later than 3 AM!!!”
While on mission our days start early, and usually end in the afternoon. After our arrival on Saturday, we will spend Sunday setting up our ORs, equipment and meds. We will evaluate patients and plan for their treatment. The week continues until Friday afternoon, with a return home on Saturday. It's hard to describe a more rewarding experience for our healthcare professionals!
Our 2023 Gala is in the books. We thank all of our generous donors and patrons for a fun and successful Denim & Diamonds! With your support we will be able to continue or mission! Next year's Gala's tentative date is October 18, 2024.
PREPARING FOR OUR NEXT MISSION
Here is our updated slide-show that we use to present NOMMS to groups and organizations who may support our mission.
“Deliver medical relief and expertise to the underprivileged population of the world, and respond to local needs, through services, treatment, and supplies, in a manner that respects the dignity and self-esteem of program recipients and volunteers.”
