What is this NGO about?
It is the vision of this organization to promote what God has already promised us; living healthy and longer lives. Saving lives all around the world is our mission. We believe every human being has the right to survive and live to achieve their dreams, no matter what country they live or were born in. We focus on medical missions, health screening and disease prevention around the world. We also believe that every child deserves to have an education no matter their financial background. God teaches us to care for one another by providing food, clothing, medicines and financial resources to widows, the poor and the homeless. We strongly believe no citizen of any nation should live in fear and therefore public safety is an integral part of this organization. Respect for human lives and property is important, hence we promote safer communities through our neighborhood security teams.
