SUPPORT IMR THROUGH A ONE-TIME OR MONTHLY DONATION
IMR courageously goes into areas with little to no medical care and treats patients with dramatic and often life-saving results. The medical mission teams provide medical services, medicines, supplies, training and education to treat and equip locals, leaving a long-lasting impact.
The medical relief we provide on each trip is effected by the skill, training and passion of the volunteers that attend and also those that support IMR through one-time donations and our monthly partner program. You can make a significant impact through giving to International Medical Relief.
MAKE A DIFFERENCE TODAY – YOUR DONATION IS 100% TAX DEDUCTIBLE
Your donation will allow us to bring more supplies, training, equipment and a long lasting relief effort to communities that need it most. International Medical Relief is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
We are currently focusing our fundraising to improve our patient care in four areas:
- Hygiene Kits
- Clean Water
- Mosquito Nets/Repellent
We are also raising money for sight-saving surgery for two young siblings born with a genetic skin disease that has left them unable to blink their eyes.
We appreciate your one-time donation to one of our causes. If you can, please consider making an ongoing monthly donation to allow us to provide even more help during our clinics throughout the year. (You can cancel at any time – just contact us.)

Surgery for Cambodian Children
We are collecting donations to pay for surgery for two siblings born with ichthyosis, a genetic condition that causes their skin to thicken. The surgery will lift their eyelids and allow them to blink, which will prevent them from going blind.
Many communities in the world have no access to clean water. The simple water filters we distribute remove bacteria and contaminants from water sources, making the water safe to drink, cook with, and bathe in. Read about how clean water helped a girl in Cambodia stay in school.
Even in areas with a high illiteracy rate, reading glasses enable patients we see to work on machinery, mend clothes, tend to a grandson’s scraped knee, and other tasks of daily life that we see in the communities we visit. Read about how reading glasses helped an Ethiopian priest with his daily prayers.
Mosquito Nets/ Repellent
Mosquito-borne illnesses such as malaria, Zika virus, encephalitis, and others are a health hazard in many areas of the world, and many families have no way to protect themselves from mosquito bites. Read how mosquito nets helped hospital patients in Ethiopia and families in Kenya.
Flooding, hurricanes, earthquakes, and other disasters can leave many people with nothing. Hygiene kits of personal items such as a comb, soap, washcloth, shampoo, and other items can help stop disease and make a world of difference. Read how clean hands help children stay in school.
This has been such a humbling experience working with such a skilled and diverse team. The Cambodian people have been so welcoming and warm. On a break during our last clinic, several of us walked behind the monastery to see how the villagers lived. Although they only had a small shack to provide shelter, they decorated with beautiful flowers and welcomed us to their home. The care we provide is important and does make an impact, but over the last few days I have realized that even more importantly is the teaching we can provide the people here so that they can continue to serve their people and make a difference once we are gone.
