2, 4, and 8-Mile Walk in beautiful Santa Monica!

It’s exciting that Lighthouse Medical Missions has been serving in Africa for 20 years as we return to The Gambia on February 17th.  This is our 27th Medical Mission trip to Africa and the 10th trip serving in The Gambia, while also celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Walk To Africa on May 5th what a memorable year indeed.  Our vision this year for Lighthouse Medical Missions and the funds raised through Walk To Africa is to help establish a medical community in The Gambia. Our goal is to raise their global awareness of health issues and how to manage for them.  They are ready to do their part and so are we!

The word philanthropy has its roots in the Greek language meaning “love for mankind.” It was never meant to apply only to donors of thousands or millions of dollars.
