Mission hospitals and clinics all over the world lacked the medicines and supplies they needed to treat their patients.

While missionary doctors did their best with what they had, the medical supplies and medicine they knew were available in the US were seemingly impossible to find in remote parts of the world.

Enter Ray Knighton: An administrator at the Christian Medical Society, Knighton heard about the stories and, as a result, he mentioned them to just about everyone he met. One fateful day, Art Larson of the Schering Drug Co., called Ray and told him he had shipped 11 tons of medicine to Ray's Chicago office.

Ray was shocked. "You did what?!" he famously responded as he had no warehouse and only a small office. The donation filled his entire office and the hallways. But when he let doctors on furlough know the medicine was available to take back to their hospitals, they came to pick it up and take it back to where it was urgently needed. The need was obvious, and the response was soon overwhelming.

Since 1954, MAP has served millions of people through the help of partners, donors, hospitals, clinics, and medical mission teams, fulfilling its Christian mission to provide life-changing medicines and health supplies for the world's poorest, most vulnerable people.
