BMI provides healthcare education and medical/surgical clinics by:

Recruiting

volunteer healthcare professionals and lay personnel

Providing

cost free healthcare services

Furnishing

essential equipment and supplies

Educating

local healthcare workers to medically care for their people

Equipping

mission sites with educational materials for on-going training

The goal of BMI is to ultimately develop each site into a self-sufficient mission, with well-equipped healthcare facilities staffed and operated by local medical personnel and volunteers. This takes time, manpower, dedication, and funding.

BMI welcomes your support in all these endeavours!

Belize

In 1986, at the invitation of the Ministry of Health of Belize and the Methodist Church of Belize, the volunteers who would later become BMI were invited to provide ophthalmic care for the northern region of Belize.

Fiji

From an association with Rev. Veramu Tora serving as a missionary in Belize and working with BMI team members there, BMI was invited to send eye teams to this South Pacific island, which at that time had only one ophthalmologist.
