Vision For Medical Supply Distribution

The reasons why we distribute donated medical supplies are to:

  1. Share the Gospel freely with as many as lost and hurting people as possible, always indicating that it is in the name of Jesus Christ that any assistance is given:


  3. “For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!  For if I do this thing willingly, I have a reward: but if against my will, a dispensation [of the gospel] is committed unto me. What is my reward then? [Verily] that, when I preach the gospel, I may make the gospel of Christ without charge, that I abuse not my power in the gospel.”

  4. Give Glory to God for His provision

  5. Distribute these supplies broadly, fairly, and according to need as led by the leading of the Holy Spirit.

  6. Work with trusted doctors and nurses who have demonstrated no wish to gain personally or financially from the donated US medical supplies.

  7. Freely help indigent people who typically have little or no resources to meet some of their medical expenses and lighten their financial burden

  8. Commit to partner with the Filipino officials and doctors, not circumventing the “Filipino Health System,” the Philippine government’s regulations, and procedural requirements when donating medical supplies.

"One gives freely, yet grows all the richer, another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want.

Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered."

Proverbs 12:24-25.
