Our Mission

To provide access to healthcare for low-resource and medically underserved families around the world.

Our Story 

FIMRC is a 501(c)(3), nonprofit organization dedicated to improving access to healthcare for families around the world through the implementation of innovative and self-sustaining health programs. Through its network of outpatient clinics and partnerships, FIMRC asserts a multidimensional strategy that includes clinical services, extensive community outreach efforts, and health education programs.

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, 90% of FIMRC’s revenue was generated through international global health volunteer travel. Each year, more than 900 volunteers traveled to FIMRC sites around the world, contributing time and resources to
FIMRC’s program in exchange for a comprehensive, hands-on global health experience. Since COVID-19, international volunteer travel has been paused and FIMRC’s clinical and preventive health services are entirely funded through donations and participation in virtual volunteer programs

FIMRC was founded in 2002, is incorporated in Washington, DC and headquartered in Philadelphia, PA. The FIMRC team includes more than 3,000 dedicated staff and volunteers worldwide who provide the leadership and support necessary to achieve our mission of improving access to healthcare for children in medically underserved communities.

We Accomplish our Mission Through Three Pillars


First and foremost, we look at access to healthcare. Can our community members easily get to a clinic? What do they do in case of an emergency? In areas where no clinical services are available, we work with the community to build out the necessary infrastructure to improve access. Whether it be the construction of our own clinic or modifying a building within the community, we work to ensure that the communities we serve have the ability to seek a healthcare professional.


Another major focus of our work is preventative health. We work hard to integrate into our communities to address local needs and launch outreach programs. We listen to our community members, the Ministry of Health and other major organizations in the communities where we work and build health education programs based on the feedback.


A key component of our success is participation. Participation from community members is vital, as we ask the community to work alongside us in improving health from the ground up. We also believe in participation from the global community. That's why FIMRC engages volunteers from all walks of life to participate in our programs. We hope to inspire the global community to help improve the health of those that we serve.
