Miami Nonprofit Jose’s Hands Gains Distinction as Leader in Connecting Medical Mission Community and Sparking Philanthropic Activity Among Millennial Generation
Date:11/4/2013

Miami, FL (PRWEB) November 04, 2013

Rooted in the heart of Miami, Jose’s Hands, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting medical mission trips to help underserved communities abroad, is emerging as a leading medical mission nonprofit, connecting the local medical altruistic community and igniting philanthropic fervor amongst the emerging millennial generation.

José Jamil Miranda, U.S. Army Major, orthopedic surgeon, and graduate of Harvard and Yale universities, envisioned forming a medical mission project, until he unexpectedly passed away. Picking up the pieces where he left off, his brother, Alex Miranda, and “Team José” joined forces to create Jose’s Hands, to live out his legacy.

“Three-billion people across the globe need assistance, with Africa alone having a shortage of one million healthcare providers,” said Alex Miranda, executive director of Jose’s Hands. “Those numbers may be overwhelming, but we wanted to help by sending students on various medical mission trips. Our goal is to subsequently bring the medical mission community together and foster support from the next generation’s leaders through philanthropic giving.”

On October 18, 2013, Jose’s Hands in association with PhilanTropic Lifestyle and NBC 6 reporter Kelly Blanco, hosted the world’s first medical mission red carpet awards event at the prestigious SLS Hotel in South Beach. The 1st Annual MEDDY Awards drew in an unprecedented 550 guests and raised $9,000, enough funds to send approximately 15 students to medical mission trips abroad as Jose’s Hands Ambassadors. Cameras rolled and flashed as various media outlets captured the excitement of the glamorous night, honoring medical mission doctors, nurses, students and organizations for their remarkable work.
