Marion Medical Mission is a Marion, Illinois-based non-profit Christian organization that combines humanitarian volunteer action with self-help projects to provide safe water, assist in building schools and meeting medical needs, empower local communities and foster inter-cultural relationships with the people of Africa. Since 1990 Marion Medical Mission volunteers have built over 10,900 shallow wells providing over two million people with safe, clean water. In cooperation with African Presbyterian and Evangelical Lutheran churches, the Marion Medical Mission also has built or rehabilitated several schools, including the first school for deaf children in the entire northern half of the country of Malawi. The Marion Medical Mission also worked with three congregations from the Synod of Livingstonia to build churches through self-help and helped them partner with three churches from Southern Illinois.
