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.

VIMM VILLAGE HEALTHWORKERS – OUR LIFELINE
Since we can’t always physically be there, one of VIMM’s most important initiatives is to provide medical training after a mission.
VIMM supports three Village Health Workers (VHW) programs located in the Olanchito area of Honduras.
These individuals are non-medical members of outlying villages that have been appointed by village leaders to continue the VIMM mission. VHW members receive abbreviated medical training, providing medicine and
care for many diseases, injuries and chronic conditions.
VHW members are supervised by and can contact an Olanchito physician when necessary.
