Reaching out to those who have limited or no access to health care, Mercy Outreach Surgical Team (M.O.S.T.) provides care and compassion during week-long outreach missions in the heart of southern and central Mexico. Our goal is to bring hope, comfort and the opportunity for a better life to children and adults through life-changing surgeries. Each medical mission uplifts the spirits, self-esteem and prospects of nearly 300 patients.
Since the program began in 1988, M.O.S.T. has been supported entirely through philanthropy. Our physicians, nurses, technical and administrative team members volunteer their time and expertise to help those in need. Without the generosity of donors and volunteers, this work could not be done.
The Mary Rumsey fund will help sustain the trips to Mexico. Established through a challenge grant, the initial campaign raised $500,000 from community members, which was matched - dollar for dollar - by the Price family to bring the total to $1 million.
