Medical Outreach from Missions for Life


University of Delaware student Sophia Eick is currently pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing. Known for maintaining a high level of academic success, she balances her school responsibilities with philanthropic work. In April 2019, Sophia Eick visited San Miguel de Allende in Mexico as a volunteer for Missions for Life, an organization that shares the Gospel of Jesus Christ with rural communities in Mexico.

As part of its work spreading hope, Missions for Life provides medical care to rural areas via its medical outreach efforts. These efforts include specialized teams of medical professionals. The organization works to establish teams of surgeons, physicians, nurses, nursing students, and nurse practitioners. Alongside these professionals, Missions for Life creates medical teams consisting of paramedics, dental hygienists, and dentists.

These medical teams provide free health screenings to community members served by the organization. They also deliver needed medical supplies to these areas. As part of its Three-Year Life Investment, the organization is expanding its primary health care delivery to families and children in deeper rural communities in Mexico. It has formed relationships with numerous organizations serving the same communities, such as Walls That Unite, Hospital General Felipe G. Dobarganes, and the Department of Integrated Families.
