Gambella Medical Team Connection (GmTc) is a vital 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization originally formed to moderate the negative impacts of apathy and lack of available services for the under-served Ethiopian immigrant and refugee population. Our organization’s projects, implemented by a well-trained volunteer, offer many opportunities for the reduction of depravity and poverty through superior health care services.
GmTc strives to serve as many people as possible with the resources we have available – every individual is important to our organization. By offering services that are concentrated on serving those less fortunate and addressing the greatest needs of our target community, we can make a positive contribution in helping the people we work with lead a more fulfilling life.
While we will provide free health consultation and advice for participants’ healthy well-being, we will also provide referral services to those participants to appropriate hospitals or clinics for further evaluations. The services will also include health education for participant to control their weight, establish healthy eating habits, translation services, and assistance with transportation to clinics or hospitals for vital appointments.
