“You have to teach not just about a subject…but to understand how to love, to understand what the values and habits are that create harmony in the world, you need a good teacher” -Pope Francis
You make a difference in the lives of young people every day. Now you can help your students live the values of our Catholic Social Teaching as part of the One Million Patients Project. We are on a mission to raise$3 million dollars (enough to take care of a million patients) by 2020. Here’s why this is important:
- Access to health care in the Amazon region of Peru can require more than a day’s journey on the Napo River, which increases the risks to the lives of mothers and children.
- Sub-Saharan Africa accounts for 80% of the global malaria burden. Malaria remains a major killer of children under five years old, taking the life of a child every two minutes.
- Over 95% of TB deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries. In one year, an estimated 1 million children worldwide became ill with TB and 250,000 children died of TB.
At Mission Doctors Association, we want to change this, and we want you to help! The One Million Patients Project was established by Mission Doctors Association to raise awareness about global health and poverty issues to encourage youth and adults of all ages to get involved and make a difference.
