Mobile Medical Disaster Relief, http://www.MMDR.org, provides medical and logistical support during disasters in which the country's medical infrastructure is damaged such as occurred in the Haitian earthquake of 2010. In between disasters, Mobile Medical Disaster Relief builds and supports medical clinics, provides clean water initiatives and implements micro finance projects in the countries which have suffered disasters.
Active in fourteen countries worldwide, the doctors and nurses of Mobile Medical Disaster Relief treat tens of thousands of patients per year who otherwise would have no access to healthcare. MMDR's clean water initiatives provide pure, fresh clean water to those who have only contaminated water to drink. Most recently, MMDR installed a water purification device that delivers 5,000 gallons of clean drinking water per day to the impoverished tribes of central Ghana. Dr. Vanderpool reports that the micro finance projects are some of the most exciting projects that MMDR participates in. He says, "These projects basically start small businesses which provide sustainable income for impoverished people worldwide." He further states that micro finance projects are key to improving living conditions in the developing world.
