What We Do

IMAHelps is changing the lives of impoverished people around the world, but our medical humanitarian outreach efforts do much more than make a difference in the lives of the poor.

Our volunteers find that helping others changes their lives, too, whether it’s re-igniting their interest in medicine or opening their minds and hearts to better appreciate everything we have in life and the positive feelings that come from helping those in need.

We Have NO ADMINISTRATIVE OVERHEAD

IMAHelps has no paid staff and our volunteers pay for their own travel costs, so every dollar of your donation is used to pay for the medicines and supplies we use on each mission.

 

100,000+

PATIENTS TREATED SINCE 2000

From Latin America to Asia, IMAHelps targets its missions to locations with extremely high levels of poverty where we can make a difference.

OUR CURRENT MISSION

IMAHelps and its volunteers are currently working on our medical humanitarian mission during July 25 to August 4, 2019 at the Hospital General in Luque, Paraguay.

This is our second mission to Luque, and our third mission in Paraguay overall.

In 2018, IMHelps volunteers provided 6,884 patients with more than $5.9 million worth of medical, dental and surgical care. This translates into a return on investment (ROI) of $63 for every dollar donated to IMAHelps for our 2018 mission.

IMAHelps Founder and President Ines Allen met earlier this year in January with Dr. Rupert A. Francis, a liaison from the Jamaican government, to begin planning a pre-mission preparation trip later in 2019. Ines was accompanied by her husband and IMAHelps Vice President, Tracey Allen; Jeff Crider, a longtime IMAHelps volunteer and board member, and Jeff's son, Max.
