In 1986, two young doctors received a calling from God – to personally offer healthcare services at no charge to impoverished and desperate individuals living in third-world countries.
Since their first trip, VIMM has substantially grown, completing 360 successful missions and providing medical and dental care to over half a million of our brothers and sisters.
Their faith in Christ continues to guide VIMM and its mission – serving God by serving others.

How do we make a difference?
VILLAGE HEALTH WORKERS – OUR LIFELINE
Since we cannot always physically be there, one of VIMM’s most valuable initiatives is to continue to provide medical care to the villages and barrios where we have established relationships and earned trust with natives/locals/villagers.
VIMM hosts Village Health Worker (VHW) programs located in Haiti and Honduras.
Haiti has seven VHWs who are paid monthly stipends funded through individual donor support. This team serves approximately 1,300 patients in remote villages each month. These individuals are members of the local and surrounding villages that have been instructed by VIMM affiliated doctors and nurses to sustain our mission.
VHWs are trained in First Care and are capable of treating a myriad of illness, including chronic and acute conditions, injuries, aches, and pains.
VHWs are supervised by local native doctors and refer patients when necessary.
