At Orphan’s Heart we believe addressing the medical needs of children and adults in the countries we serve has an enormous impact and is a beautiful way to show people the love of Christ.

We are seeking dental and medical professionals to serve alongside us to provide quality, sustainable care that will have an eternal impact!

Our goal is to serve the unique needs of each country and hopefully expand our medical mission work to more countries in the near future.

Uniquely purposed medical mission work in each country


Participate in mobile clinics in communities where partner churches are working diligently to share the Gospel. You will provide general, pediatric, women’s health, central and specialty care to children and families.

Dominican Republic

Our goal is to provide general, pediatric, women’s health, dental and specialty care to children and families living in a community near Azua. Orphan’s Heart has built homes and a community transformation center in this region to meet physical, spiritual and educational needs. The care will be for those living in the recently built homes as well as the surrounding community.


Working at a malnutrition center outside of Antigua you will help provide life-saving and life-changing medical care to children in need of nutrition and long-term care. We have a nutritionist, three nurses and a part-time pediatrician on site. We recently added a dental chair to the center and are excited to provide more consistent dental care.


At the Holmes Medical Clinic, built by Orphan’s Heart, you will assist a physician’s assistant, two nurses and a lab technician. You may participate in medical camps or clinics in Kamonkoli or Soroti. Medical camps provide screenings and preventative health education, and clinics serve people without access to transportation or healthcare.
