For fifteen years, FIMRC has shown responsible and transparent leadership in primary care development. As a growing organization, we have many responsibilities and many players in our work.


We are responsible to the communities with whom we work. We have made a commitment to working with them and developing programs and services that will be sustainable and impactful for each unique site. Our work is ethical, and we hold ourselves to a high standard in providing exemplary care for underserved communities.


We are responsible to our volunteers. As an organization, we are responsible in providing an experience for our volunteers to see what healthy, sustainable development work looks like while keeping them in a safe environment. Our volunteers sustain our efforts, both locally and abroad. We are committed to providing eye-opening, adventurous trips that are founded on ethical volunteering in medically underserved regions.


Lastly, we are responsible to the global community. Our mission pushes us to learn more, do more, and care more about those in need around the world. We make many decisions at our project sites. Before implementing new programs, we ensure plans will be beneficial for the community through constant community participation. We intend to continue our tradition of slow and steady progress globally, and hope you will be a part of that journey!
