How We Became the AdventHealth Global Missions Department

Our Story

After the earthquake hit Haiti in 2010, so close to home, we knew that we had to do something to use our resources to help those in our global community. AdventHealth set up a department called Global Missions to partner with our sister institutions around the world.

Volunteers helping other people.
Turning Interest Into Action

Our Volunteers

Whether working on a water-well project in Ethiopia, caring for patients in Haiti or providing medical support to communities in Peru, we provide hands-on volunteer opportunities for AdventHealth employees on a global scale. Our Footprint locations are a true testament to what can be accomplished when we promote health care to alleviate sickness and suffering. Our volunteers get directly involved and actively engaged in the following activities:
 

  • Provide medical and surgical care to patients
  • Promote health education to communities
  • Conduct training programs for clinical staff
  • Deliver donated equipment and supplies
  • Raise funds for approved mission trips and projects

"I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.
