Global Outreach Doctors is a humanitarian organization of dedicated medical professionals providing international healthcare.

Our medical team responds immediately to worldwide disasters in Africa, Asia, North, South, and Central Americas and the Middle East. We deploy canine search & rescue assets to enhance our success in locating survivors quickly.

Current Deployment along the Syrian Border

Our current mission is the Syrian refugee camps just over the border in Jordan. The largest has over 100,000 people, mostly children. Along with our partner on the ground, we are treating over 1000 people a day. These refugees are fleeing some of the most atrocious conditions and many have not made it. We need your support to make these medical trips happen.

Nepal Water and Sanitation

GoDocs deployed in July 2016 to bring self-sustaining water purification machinery to remote areas of Nepal. With donations and partnership from H2OpenDoors, and Helping Hands International of Kathmandu, our team was able to bring fresh water and sanitation instruction to the village, and teach handwashing classes in school.

Thank you for supporting Global Outreach Doctors and helping us respond and provide urgent lifesaving help.

Global Outreach Doctors has been providing urgent lifesaving support to our refugee friends in refugee camps and on the island of Lesbos, off the coast of Turkey.

Our first day included helping refugee babies, children and adults to shore from over-crowded boats. We treated hypothermia, shock and offered acute care.

Nepal Earthquake Relief:

Our team landed a few days after the April 25, 2015 7.8 earthquake. We sent an initial team of 9 medical/SAR staff and 3 canines (now 22 team members, including 3 MDs, 1 HoM doc). We partnered with long time friends, Helping Hands Hospital in Chabahil and new partner, Global Karuna.

Our medical team provided care for approximately 100 patients a day, most in areas that had not received much medical care in the past. We treated patients with head injuries, lacerations, bacterial/viral infections, fractures, muscle/skeletal injuries, gastrointestinal issues and emotional trauma from losing love ones.

GoDocs delivered food to the rural regions of Lele and Jiwanpur. Our food truck carried 1000 pounds of food and our team divided this into 10 pound bags to serve almost 100 families. We’ve also worked in Katmandu and the Chabahil regions. Our canine SAR has conducted several searches, some requested in rural regions and other more comprehensive searches in the hardest hit Bhaktapur regions. These searches tended to be within collapsed buildings and other rubble piles. Along the way we provided intel to the Canadian military DART team on areas of high need.

Why another medical humanitarian organization?

There’s one physician for every 20,000 people in parts of Africa alone.

Underserved areas need more medical providers: surgeons, doctors, nurses, paramedics, eastern practitioners and mental health professionals. There are stark disparities in health care, and health outcomes around the world.

Unlike other organizations, Global Outreach Doctors provides both western and eastern complimentary medical practitioners. Our team includes medical doctors, nurses, paramedics, naturopaths, homeopaths, acupuncturists and psychologists.

We provide global health medical services in developing countries affected by famine, infant mortality and chronic health issues. GoDocs envisions improving health care and health outcomes by building local capacity and improving health care delivery in all underserved, disadvantaged populations worldwide.

Dedicate, Engage, Serve!
