The MMS Foundation has received no government subsidies to date, and all the missions are carried out thanks to the generosity of volunteers and donors. Their contributions have allowed us to carry out several surgical missions in Burkina Faso and in Rwanda. Since November 2011, we have cared for more than 100 women with fistula.
Medical supplies, equipment and medications for these missions have been graciously donated by 3M Canada, Accord Health, AMD Ritmed, Bard, BD, Cardinal Health, CHS Canadian Hospital Specialities, ConMed, Covidien, Hollister Canada, Johnson & Johnson, Medtronic, Medline, Red Leaf Medical, SCA Americas, and Steris.
The Montreal Jewish General Hospital and the Institut de Cardiologie have provided us with medical products at hospital prices. Other firms such as Café Agga, Café Brossard, Homeocan, Ove, U-Haul of Eastern Quebec, and Viita have also made generous contributions to our Foundation.
Last, but not least, we are thankful to our friends and family members who have attended our fundraising events and helped us raise the money necessary to finance our missions, the cost of which is constantly on the rise due to the increasing price of airfare.
