The Northern Arizona Volunteer Medical Corp (NAVMC) began in 1995 following a volunteer trip to Armenia by Dr. Kelly Reber and Dr. Bert Mckinnon. They returned from the trip with the desire to organize a local group of doctors and nurses to provide free medical care to those in need. Since that time, our team has made numerous trips to many countries, including Mongolia, Cambodia, Brazil, Mexico and Haiti. Our volunteers come from Flagstaff as well as all over the U.S. We are a non-profit organization that has no overhead. All volunteers pay for their own expenses.
Our current efforts are focused in Haiti and include providing medical care through Bernard Mews Hospital as well as the support of two Orphanages in the capital city of Port Au Prince. In 2010, the country was struck by a devastating earthquake leaving 250,000 people dead, millions without homes and thousands of children orphaned. Within a month of the disaster NAVMC responded with medical and financial support. Then, in the fall of 2016, disaster struck again with the arrival of Hurricane Matthew. NAVMC volunteers have traveled to Haiti more than a dozen times and have become a major lifeline for the sick, the injured and the homeless. With the support of our community, NAVMC has been able to help respond to these disasters and save lives.
Hundreds of children have been nourished largely through the efforts NAVMC has aimed at two orphanages. We have provided them with food, shelter, electricity and educational tools. NAVMC has made multiple trips to these orphanages to improved their lives through various construction projects. This was completely funded through Flagstaff contributions.
NAVMC has been actively involved with various organizations that improve the lives of children locally. We have worked to help fund Camp Colton, 4-H Cinderhillbillies archery club and the Flagstaff Family Food Center.
NAVMC wants your help to secure a healthy and safe future for the children of Flagstaff and Haiti. We believe that our future hope lies in our children.
Your generous donations have made this possible. We are asking again for your support.
