About Us

Who We Are

Mercy Trips Healthcare Outreach is a non-profit organization registered in the state of Texas. We have been granted 501 (c) (3) status by the IRS. We are a non-denominational Christian-based organization that partners with local health workers in medically underserved areas to provide services as an outreach of Christian love for our fellow man. We were formed in 2006 to improve upon a medical partnership begun with Lodoi Foundation in Uganda in 2002.

 

 

 

What We Do

Our short-term missions typically last about 2 weeks. Our services provided during the trips vary according to the team composition. During the trip one team travels to rural village sites and offers free medical screening clinics, preventative care, and mosquito net distribution. This team will also inspect, and at times assist in construction of water improvement projects. Occasionally a clergy/evangelical team will be attached to the village team as well. A second team is stationed at an appropriate hospital or clinic site to perform general and/or gynecologic surgeries that are otherwise unavailable to the local population. Cases are defined by the facility and team composition, but have included hernias, major abdominal cases, thyroid goiter, hysterectomy, ovarian mass removal, and many other major and minor surgical cases. While our services are often offered at local Christian church sites, care is always provided by our team free of charge, to all who come without any discrimination, or attempt to tie receipt of services or medications to any need for religious conversion. Team members from all backgrounds and experience levels are welcomed to join us.
