Mobile Medical Disaster Relief is a Brentwood, TN based non profit organization which provides medical care, clean water initiatives, nutritional support and micro finance opportunities to those ravaged by natural and man made disasters. Active in 14 countries worldwide, Mobile Medical Disaster Relief provided medical care to 10,000 patients last year who otherwise would not have had the opportunity of receiving medical care. One of the greatest difficulties after a disaster is the procurement of clean water. Last year, Mobile Medical Disaster Relief provided 20,000 gallons of clean water per day to people around the world who were faced with drinking contaminated water. Similarly, food is usually in short supply after natural and man made disasters, Mobile Medical Disaster Relief provided tons of food to starving people in Haiti and throughout Africa to meet this most basic need. After the initial crisis is past, Mobile Medical Disaster Relief educates the indigenous people in sustainable farming techniques to better equip them to care for themselves. To meet the long term needs of indigenous people to provide income for themselves, Mobile Medical Disaster Relief initiates micro finance programs and vocational education appropriate to the specific region.
Recently, Mobile Medical Disaster Relief has purchased 63 acres of land outside of Port au Prince, Haiti to build a surgical hospital, orphanage, vocational school, secondary school, church and guest house. This base of operations will be used to help the people of Haiti live fuller and more productive lives.
