Basic medical supplies that we take for granted -- such as antibiotics, syringes, bandages, and simple procedures -- are considered luxuries by many living in difficult circumstances in developing countries. FCF mission partners address these needs through a variety of means, including procuring and delivering basic medical supplies to clinics, and providing medical programs to communities in need.
