The Benefits Helping Needy People By assisting needy people, the United States plays the unique role the world expects to see and shows the philanthropic character of our nation. By healing their loved ones, America brings happiness to thousands of families around the world.
The Benefits Improving the Image of America Worldwide
The image of the United States has been damaged over the last decade. Surveys conducted in numerous of foreign countries show how America lost sympathy, support and even respect of our close allies in Europe and other countries of the world. People overseas perceive that America sends only military support abroad. Loss of world wide support
Messengers of Hope and Peace By providing free medical care to needy people in foreign countries, American doctors will convey a message of hope, peace and friendship, which will bring love and respect to our nation and greatly help improve the image of the United States.
The Benefits Creating Volunteering Opportunities AMFA creates opportunities for our kind doctors to reach the needy people they intend to help. Medical students participating in AMFA would gain practical experience in medicine. This unique opportunity allows volunteers to experience how other people live and to learn more about their cultures as they provide them with needed medical care.
Why American Medicine For All? America is well known as a super power. But its philanthropic actions toward poor nations especially in the medical care is invisible. Presently, hundreds of American doctors actively participate in international organizations such as Doctors Without Borders. But this organization was created in France and the recipients of its services around the world look at it as a French or European organization. The international organizations receive big support from our community, but America remains invisible and does not receive the equal thanks and respect it deserves.
AMFA is the RIGHT RESPONSE at the RIGHT TIME AMFA will put an American label on the generous efforts our troops of mercy and compassion make to save lives of children, mothers, elderly men and women and draw smiles on the faces of tens of thousands of people around the world.
