The Volunteer Medical Corps (VMC), founded in 2016 in Lagos, Nigeria, is a global Christian medical outreach organization that provides humanitarian assistance in the form of medical care, relief assistance and long-term healthcare networks to communities in need.
The organization partners with individuals and non-profits who share their goals of enhancing healthcare systems, health education and relief aid to displaced populations (including refugees and those affected by natural and man-made disasters) and under-served communities. There are over 65.6 million people across the world that are currently displaced, and more than 22.5 million people have become refugees. These communities often endure poor living conditions putting them at greater risk for illness, disease and death.
The initiatives of the Volunteer Medical Corps and its partner organizations are dedicated to providing these communities with adequate healthcare services and manpower development to aid local health workers.
In addition to providing relief aid and assistance, the Volunteer Medical Corps has sponsored community health initiatives including voluntary blood drives, free eye screenings, ministered words of hope and faith to cancer patients, and provided medications and supplements to under-served communities.
The Volunteer Medical Corps works to build strong, healthy communities and provides Christian teachings to lift the spirits of those who are in the midst of crisis and despair.
The Volunteer Medical Corps is comprised of dedicated volunteers who work in the service of the Lord to deliver care to those in need. The organization provides health education services and training materials to all of its volunteers as a vital element of its operations ensuring that they are competent in their act of service.
Those who serve as volunteers to Volunteer Medical Corps and partner with the organization are devoted to improving the lives of others and are guided by strong Christian principles of generosity and charity.
There are currently more than 150 countries with active Volunteer Medical Corps chapters across the world. As a charitable organization, the Volunteer Medical Corps is proud to report that ninety percent of all public donations go towards the organization’s mission and projects.
The Chris Oyakhilome Foundation International is proud to sponsor the outstanding Volunteer Medical Corps in providing essential health services and relief materials to those in the greatest need. Through the partnership of these organizations, more people in dire need will be able to receive the medical aid they desperately deserve.
The Chris Oyakhilome Foundation International enthusiastically supports the work of Volunteer Medical Corps to ensure the word of the lord provides people in need with hope and love to overcome their struggles.
