Wherever it goes, Portland, Ore.-based Medical Teams International (MTI) declares, "Hope is on the way."
In the United States, MTI is known for its fleet of Winnebagos-10 in all-that have been converted to mobile dental clinics. Around the world, the group is known for often being first on the scene at disasters and conflicts. Currently, MTI is working in Kenya, Cameroon, Uganda, and 30 other countries. And everywhere, MTI says its mission is the same: "Demonstrate the love of Christ to people affected by disaster, conflict and poverty around the world."
