THE STORY:

A group of doctors from the Mammoth Lakes area was one of the first medical teams on the ground in Letye Province, Philippines, in the wake of Typhoon Haiyan in 2013. The team of 16 medical volunteers and support staff, working in a makeshift hospital in the roofless town hall in Tanauan, was able to treat 157 cases within the first 3–6 days after the storm’s landfall, delivering 11 babies (two by C-section) and saving dozens of lives.

The intrepid group has made headlines for its heroic self-contained medical response in cases of disaster and mass casualty. MMM’s volunteer medical personnel and organizers have served on missions to Haiti, the Philippines, and Southern Mexico, often in unsanitary, difficult conditions.
