Welcome to WONM...
The World Organization of WONM is an international politically and religiously neutral humanitarian NGO.
To provide healthcare to under served people and to promote humanitarian values through education.
- We are called to serve the neediest of the most disadvantaged people of the earth and seek to relieve their suffering and to assist in making sustainable improvements in their lives.
- We seek to engage them, to promote their voice, and to offer our hands and feet in service.
- We respect those in need as active participants, not passive recipients, in this relationship.
- We regard all individuals as created and loved by God.
- We believe that healthcare should not focus on for profit care but geared towards self-care, prevention of disease and sustainable development of rural communities.
- We are not owners of the resources made available to us on behalf of the forgotten of this world.
- We are partners with those we serve as well as with those who invest into our shared mission.
- Our relationships are purposeful, diverse, and encourage mutual participation in achieving WONM's mission.
