Who We Are
Islanders suffer from a chronic shortage of basic, life-saving medicines and medical supplies, made worse by unhygienic living conditions and a critical shortage of doctors.
Water is often scarce, wells are sometimes not protected or groundwater contaminated. The sheer isolation of Kiribati’s 33 islands scattered across the central Pacific makes transportation extremely challenging.
As you know, we have been taking medicines, medical supplies, communications and lighting equipment, eye care and specialist medical teams to Christmas (Kiritimati), Fanning (Tabuaeran), and Washington (Teraina) for about five years now.
We are Pacific Islands Medical Aid, a non profit (501c3) humanitarian charity on a mission to help change the world.
“100% of your dollars go directly to the projects you designate”
Our mission is to help save lives and reduce pain and suffering in some of the poorest island nations in the Pacific region by providing urgently needed doctors, medicines, medical supplies and services, clean water technology, communications equipment and emergency transportation.
