Who We Are
Meduni UMSI, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, was established in 2016 in the State of Maryland to assist patients who are in desperate need. Our mission is to provide healthcare assistance and support to individuals and communities in need, with a predominant focus on Armenia.
Although our primary focus is improving the healthcare sector of Armenia, we found it necessary to redirect our geographical focus to the State of Maryland during the COVID19 pandemic. Our goal is to provide necessary healthcare essentials to the local hospitals and government organizations to protect our communities, first responders, medical professionals, and essential workers.
Our mission is to improve the healthcare in Armenia with a primary focus on pediatric and adult oncology/hematology. We aim to equip Armenia with modern diagnostic and treatment capabilities and to provide access to affordable medication and treatment solutions.
During 2019, our first year of active involvement in Armenia, we helped 35 children battling cancer with essential medication, donated $100,000.00 in equipment and supplies, performed free surgeries for eligible patients in Armenia, and trained 7 Armenian physicians to perform colorectal surgeries using laparoscopic equipment.
We strive to support the causes we care about, despite the limited resources and relatively short existence of our nonprofit. We aim to do more in years to come to assist more people and communities in need. Please get involved as a volunteer, member or donor to help support our mission.
