Become a Medical Missions Foundation volunteer

We have booties on the ground around the world.



Volunteer at our headquarters

If you are interested in a volunteer opportunity in the metro Kansas City area, we always need volunteers to help organize our supply warehouse in preparation for missions or to help in the office. In addition, Medical Missions Foundation hosts fundraising events throughout the year, which are great volunteer experiences for individuals or groups. Medical Missions Foundation accepts applications for internships for students in high school and college students who are interested in a nonprofit or medical career.


Volunteer on a mission

The core of the work of Medical Missions Foundation is provided by volunteer doctors, nurses, and support staff. Our surgeries and clinics are run and staffed by volunteer medical professionals and support personnel who use their own time, talents and money to do this important work.

In addition, there is limited space on each mission for non-medical volunteers, assigned based on need by the mission coordinators. Volunteers work on logistics, on clinic intake, on art projects with people awaiting surgery, and on spreading happiness. In most countries, volunteers travel to local children’s homes and schools, and may work with local partners on initiatives ranging from clean water to burn prevention.

Medical Missions Foundation offers a limited number of travel grants to help defray the costs of the trips.
