Mammoth Medical Missions Is Among the First to Provide Medical Assistance After Typhoon Haiyan Devastates the Philippines
Date:11/11/2013

atients, there were about 300 people outside waiting for help. The team performed 55 surgeries in one day. They are mostly amputations and debridement of wounds due to lots of infections. The team has been very well received by the local people and is safe due to the large military detail attached to us. MMM, at this time, is the only aid group in the area." In addition, Dr. Karch stated that everyone on the team is doing well.  

"There are a few times in life when you make a swift, heartfelt decision because you know it's the right thing to do, even if it means sacrifice, uncertainty and potential danger," said Karch, who also is CEO of Mammoth Medical Missions. "When we heard about the magnitude of this storm, we quickly convened our board and decided to change the course of a routine medical mission and respond to this large-scale disaster. I am confident our team has the skills, compassion as well as mental and physical endurance to meet this challenge and save lives."

The decision to re-deploy the Mammoth Medical Missions team has come at a large financial cost to the members, who made new travel arrangements and helped secure additional medical supplies. "We quickly moved from needing to support a routine medical mission to being a first responder in a massive disaster relief effort," added Gilanne Bourne, treasurer of Mammoth Medical Missions. "Obviously, we weren't able to conduct any fundraising to secure donations or in-kind gifts in advance of this emergency mission, so we are grateful for any support from the community and well-wishers everywhere to help us aid the people of the Philippines."

Donations can be made directly at www.mammothmedicalmissions.org/donate.
