Why Do What We Do?

Our Belief For A Cause

During several visits to Jamaica, a lack of access to healthcare was identified.  Medical treatment is problematic and preventative care is not a priority. Often medical problems go unaddressed until advanced stages are reached. Although healthcare is free, Jamaica is a country of moderate poverty and resources are lacking. The physicians, working for the public health system, are over-burdened by the number of patients and lack of resources. Simply, there are not enough healthcare providers for the number of patients. Many Jamaicans make barely enough money to meet their daily needs and cannot afford medical care with a private physicians. Thus, basic preventative healthcare is often not performed.
In Jamaica, cardiovascular diseases account for four of the five leading causes of death and remains one of the greatest challenges to the health of the nation.  Diseases such hypertension, kidney disease, diabetes, strokes and heart disease could be prevented with simple cardiovascular screenings. The distressing thing is that the risk factors are silent killers and by the time residents start to have symptoms, there would possibly be damage; so screening is really the only way of knowing. We have identified that a medical cardiovascular screening program using qualified medical staff, lab evaluation, education and medications if appropriate would be a helpful resource to decrease cardiovascular disease.

Hope Is Where the Heart Is

THE JOSHUA MISSION wants to spread our message of hope and compassion. We believe that a single action can make a difference in the community, and that collective action can greatly impact the world. Our goal is to provide medical services, school supplies and clothing to communities that lack access to these resources.

Medical Mission

As part of our ongoing efforts to improve access to health care to the underserved in Jamaica, the Joshua Mission has been providing support for the operations of a free standing clinic that operates for one week in Negril, Jamaica yearly for the past three years. Depending on the number of volunteers we can screen an average of 600 adults in a week span. We project our patient load to increase by 10% per year through superior performance and word of mouth referrals. Even though our mission trips generally last for one week, the preparation work could take several months.
