Foundation for International Medical Relief of Children

Provides medical relief to underserved children in Africa and developing countries worldwide via the establishment of pediatric health clinics and medical mission opportunities for volunteers.

The Foundation for International Medical Relief of Children (FIMRC) works to improve healthcare in Sub Saharan Africa and throughout the developing world. FIMRC builds health clinics and provides community outreach and preventative health education programs. Since 2006, FIMRC has been working in rural Bumwalukani, Uganda, to provide healthcare services to students and teachers at the Arlington Academy of Hope school and the community at large, reaching more than 10,000 children, women, and men each year. The clinic has 14 Ugandan staff members, 15 Community Health Educators, and receives more than 50 volunteers from universities and the medical community each year.

The clinic provides immunizations, training for community members in basic healthcare and common disease prevention, HIV/AIDS testing and education, and a number of innovative preventative health programs based on local needs. It is also the only clinic in the region that provides care to newborns. FIMRC also supports community groups that work with men, women, and children to directly influence the health and well being of families within the area.

FIMRC’s volunteers come from universities, medical schools and the medical profession. Volunteers travel to the clinic each year to support and expand the ongoing efforts of the organization through creativity and diverse skill sets.
