OI Medical Missions and Plans in 2023
February 14, 2023
The Operation International team is excited for everything ahead in 2023, as we look to build on last year's successful missions, developments, and fundraisers.
With activities already recently occurring and more under way, here are some of the things going on this year:
Upcoming Missions (Confirmed):
- Bhutan, Team NY, March 9
- Ghana, Team Chicago, April 27
- Ghana, Team Restore Vision, June 29
- Ghana, Team SRT, June 15
- Ghana, Team Kids, October 25
In addition to the confirmed missions, we have several others still in the works as we finalize dates and locations. We will keep you updated as they are made known.
School and Orphanage Developments
A lot of positive activity is taking place, as we expand our outreach simply beyond medical care. Orphan care and education are two of those areas.
By supporting the Jack Van de Wetering School and Orphanage as well as The Glory School, Operation International and all volunteers and donors are making a difference in the lives of hundreds of children.
We are supporting the construction of new buildings for schooling and housing of children, and with your support, we can expand those efforts, as there are many more kids that our help.
In places like Uganda, the HIV/AIDS situation is very severe, and it has left one too many children without parents or guardians to take care of them.
Every child deserves to live a happy and healthy life, properly fed, clothed, sheltered, and educated, in addition to receiving quality health care as a basic human right.
Last year's 25th Gala was not only a lot of fun, but a huge success. We raised $225,000! These funds go a long way in making our missions financially feasible.
We look forward to build on last year's success with another fabulous Gala this year, date TBD.
Additional Fundraising Events
As our various OI teams will be raising money for their specific missions, there will be opportunities to support them as well.
As those events are confirmed, we will share them with you.
Great Things Ahead with Your Help
Indeed, this year is off to a great start, and with the upcoming missions in Bhutan and Ghana, we are excited to share with you those developments.
Our outreach can only go as far as your continued support. Your generosity is welcomed, and the people you support really do appreciate it. They know the life-changing surgeries and overall care are not possible with you.
Together, let's make the world a better place.
