There are now more than two thousand medical professionals in eighty countries. Each participant must exhibit compassion, caring, and empathy toward the indigent. They all could be establishing lucrative businesses in their home countries. Instead, they have chosen to give of their skills and talents to those who do not have access to medical care.
