Seton Medical Center Hays cares for patients in South Travis County, Hays, and Caldwell. They are the largest medical campus in Hays County, and with their wealth of resources comes a surplus – a surplus that is being put to good use thanks to their generosity and goodwill.
Medical Bridges raised $1,740 through the generous contributions of 18 donors in Big Give Houston's first year,
and we're grateful to everyone who shared in its success! Thank you!

Since the last hostilities in Gaza in 2014, Helping Hand for Relief and Development (HHRD) has started to exert hard efforts to provide assistance to people and children in Gaza who already grow up in a dismaying socioeconomic and poverty context.
Congruent with HHRD's humanitarian objective focused on mitigating the effects of emergencies in Gaza, HHRD delivered many cargoes as In-Kind Gifts of medical items to Jordanian Field Hospital in Gaza through Jordan Hashemite Charity Organization (JHCO).

Part of Medical Bridges' success depends greatly on the partnerships it creates with other organizations whose missions align closely with or parallel its own. Recently, one such organization, Texas Children's Global Health Initiative (TCGHI), invited Medical Bridges to personally meet some of its doctors and support staff and tour its offices to better learn about its mission and goals. Texas Children's Global Health partners on various programs and initiatives, one of which is the Baylor College of Medicine Pediatric AIDS Initiative at Texas Children's Hospital (BIPAI).
A group of 12 University of Missouri students took a break from the snow in their home state to visit Houston in January, including a stop at Medical Bridges to volunteer, guided by a primary principle to "Serve, Don't Help."
The students represented Mizzou Alternative Breaks, which sends groups on trips around the U.S. over weekend and seasonal school breaks to "selflessly and humbly serve a community by doing service that they ask of us," according to its website. They were told to head South on their winter break, and the students - all health majors who didn't know each other before they loaded into two cars to drive to Houston -- chose this city to visit on their health-focused trip because of its Medical Center and many hospitals.
