Medical Service Ministries
Open Eyes sponsors medical ministries in a wide variety of areas. Visiting team members routinely include doctors, nurses, nurse practioners, pharmacists, dentists, ophthalmologists, EMTs, and others. When a medical team expresses interest in visiting Central America to provide free medical services as a form of ministry, Open Eyes schedules the event with local authorities in the area and makes sure all of the needed facilities will be available. We work with the team well in advance to make sure we are prepared on both ends. Our staff accompanies the team during their visit, assists them as needed, provides translators, transportation, housing, food and other logistics, as well as prayer support and local tours as time allows. There is much involved in conducting a first-class medical mission trip and Open Eyes has the years of experience and expertise to do it correctly. Terry and Arlene duPont both have backgrounds in the medical profession and thoroughly enjoy seeing dedicated professionals volunteer their time and energy to help touch the lives of the less fortunate.
