Thank you for your interest in serving with Mission to Heal!
Submit the application below, along with a $100 deposit, to be considered for an upcoming mission. Have personal information ready like your emergency contact, passport details, a resume, and credit card to submit the application deposit.

  • Applicant Information

  • As it appears on your passport.
  • Please attach a high-resolution scan of the identification 2-page spread of your passport.
    Accepted file types: jpg, png, pdf.
  • Emergency Contact Information

  • Your Interest

  • Describe why you are interested in participating in a M2H expedition. If you are a college student, please indicate your career ambitions.
  • Please describe your education level, your occupation or profession, and any training or skills relevant to this trip (e.g., medical, construction, farming, mechanical, languages other than English). This information is often needed by M2H when applying for letters of invitation or permission to enter a host country to conduct a medical mission.
  • Please describe any previous mission experience, any similar travel experiences, and/or any examples of living in under-resourced conditions (i.e., roughing it).
  • Please list any conditions or issues that may hinder your ability to serve as a member of one of our teams. Mission to Heal field teams often travel to remote and physically demanding environments. Your contributions to our efforts may include, but will not be limited to: lifting and carrying of supply bags weighing 50 lbs. or less, transportation of patients by stretcher, traveling long distance by automobile, forgoing a normalized meal schedule, and generally adapting to a resource poor and or high stress environment. Your safety is our obligation. An inability to perform the above tasks is not necessarily grounds for exclusion.

  • Please attach a resume or C.V. that details your experience and expertise.

  • Volunteer Commitments

    We are grateful to the dozens of volunteers who donate their time, talent, and energy to missions each year. As a nonprofit organization, Mission to Heal works in partnership with volunteers to ensure that the burden of cost is not transferred to the patients we serve.
  • To be considered for a M2H expedition, you must submit this application along with a deposit of $100 which counts towards your overall fundraising commitment. If you are denied acceptance, or if you must withdraw from the proposed mission, the deposit will not be refunded. You may use the deposit in a later application for a trip; otherwise, we will both consider it a donation.
  • Joining a mission is free and all costs are covered by M2H, but all volunteers are required to fundraise $5,500 for Mission to Heal. This amount supports Mission to Heal in addition to covering the cost of airfare, food, lodging, transportation, medical supplies, and fuel for the Mobile Surgical Unit. Mission to Heal provides a fundraising toolkit and supports each volunteer in raising this amount.
  • I acknowledge that a post-mission reflection essay is required of me and must be submitted within 2 weeks of the trip's completion. Failure to complete this reflection will result in receiving no credit for this mission, regardless of performance, and will be noted in any letter of recommendation on my behalf.
  • I grant Mission to Heal the right to use my photographs, video, and reflection essay as well as other photos and videos taken of me from this trip in print and digital form with or without my name for any lawful purpose, including publicity, advertising, and web content.
  • By signing this application, I, along with all members of my family, do hereby voluntarily waive any and all claims for any reason against Mission to Heal (DBA Mission2Heal), or its officers, leaders, and associated institutions or sponsors.   By signing this application, I also certify that to the best of my knowledge, I am physically and mentally able to participate in a Mission to Heal expedition.
