An ideal mission site will have some sort of tertiary care facility in which we can operate, acceptable anesthesia equipment, and the support of local health-care personnel and politicians for our efforts. Any community in need in a developing country would potentially be a candidate for a Destination: Hope medical mission. If you would like to suggest a recipient community for a future medical mission, please contact us.
As of February 2014, we have made an agreement with the government of Occidental Mindoro, Philippines to adopt a provincial hospital in that area. We will plan a yearly trip to that region in order to maximize our usefulness by concentraing on a single community. This will also enable us to focus on follow-up our own patients and improve year after year on our reconstructive surgery outcomes.
