Dorcas Medical Mission, Inc. ("DMM") is a faith-based, not-for-profit
medical mission organization based in Brooklyn, New York. DMM is
the brain-child of our founder, President and Chief Executive Officer,
Reverend Lorna J. Mullings, a registered nurse, who firmly believes
that God has called her to serve humanity through missionary work.
Combining her love for ministry and her skills as a nurse, she
assembled a group of over 400 volunteers from the medical and allied
professions, from over 20 countries, who donated their time and
expertise to improve the quality of life of thousands of folks in need.
DMM conducts bi-annual missions to Africa, Asia, the Caribbean,
Central, North, and South America. Our programs provide free health
care, including surgical, medical, dental, podiatry, and vision care, to
the underserved in the various countries we serve. In addition to the
medical programs, DMM impacts the lives of the poor through
educational, nutritional, and apparel programs.
Since inception, we have conducted over 50 medical missions and
have provided health care services to more than 300,000 individuals.
