Timmy Global Health is an Indianapolis-based nonprofit that expands access to healthcare and empowers students and volunteers to tackle today’s most pressing global health challenges. We believe all people, regardless of who they are, what resources they have, and where they live, should have access to quality healthcare. Timmy strives to make this vision a reality by strengthening the capacity of local health systems through short-term medical service programs and long-term health solutions.
What started as a humble, grassroots effort now directly supports 10 community based project sites in the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, and Nigeria.
First, we identify local leaders and partners to learn the specific needs of their communities. We then utilize our network of local and international volunteers and partners to design and implement sustainable locally-owned and "harvested" solutions that are simple and effective. Next, we monitor and improve these projects to ensure they continue to meet the needs of the communities until we have ensured they are sustainable and self-supportive. Find out how you can get involved.
True North Missions: Serving Guatemala
Truth North Missions provides comprehensive healthcare to the children of Mayan Indian Tribes in Central America. These indigenous people were displaced by Guatemala's 36 year civil war which ended in 1999. The Mayans have migrated to isolated areas in bordering countries to avoid persecution and discrimination.
The United Nations refers to them as "The Forgotten People". They estimate their number at over 200,000. Even now, years after being driven out of their home, their poverty and isolation impose many social and economic problems, not the least of which is healthcare.
SEA Mercy: South Pacific
Sea Mercy is a not-for-profit organization founded in 2012 with the goal of bringing free health care to the remote islands of the South Pacific. Operating from our fleet of “Floating Health Care Clinics” (FHCC) vessels (large sailing catamarans), we have engaged the international sailing community, the international health care community, and the health ministries of our island nation partners in order to bring this much needed care to the thousands of remote inhabited islands. Sea Mercy’s goal is to establish recurring visits to the same islands providing health screening, preventative care, maintenance of chronic conditions, and treatment of acute illnesses. The tropical medicine elective is a partnership between Sea Mercy and the Palmetto Health Emergency Medicine Residency Program that provides a unique educational experience in international medicine.
Mozambique is stepping up to the plate: The ministry of health has recognized the need for emergency medicine specialty training. The ministry is taking the following key steps:

- Hosting their first emergency medicine residency
At PLeDGE Health, we take pride in supporting our partners in development. Our partnership with Mozambique is our favorite blend of supporting and providing technical expertise to partners doing amazing work. We need your support for volunteer medical training and education.
