Medical Wings International is a 501(C)3 charitable organization that began in 1998.  With a network of medical professionals and ordinary people making an impact around the world to underserved communities. Our team has expanded and now includes high school students, college students, educators and retirees.  MWI provides the opportunity for individuals and organizations to share their passion by helping those in need. You can also become an MWI member and can join us on a mission. We work closely with in-country government agencies and their local organizations to provide assistance where needed around the world.



We believe that the current pace of advancing technology is shrinking the world into a global village. Linking our
fate with people in all corners of the underserved population of the world. We believe that we should do as we say.
The little extended hands of the world’s children and elderly are everyone’s responsibility.



Our volunteer teams have made significant contributions to global communities by addressing: Medical, Dental, Vision Care, Education, Hunger, Disaster Relief and Community Development. Medical Wings International establishes long term relationships. Providing empowerment to isolated regions of the world.
