“Life is great when shared through service with integrity…”
“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the water to create many ripples” – Mother Teresa.
Life Is Great (LIG) Global foundation is a non government organization based in the United States of America that strives to bring together medical and non medical volunteers who can provide medical care and relief to those in need. We wish to inspire medical volunteerism by educating health-care professionals and sending them on medical missions to under-served areas.
Dr Ernani- founder member of LIG Global Foundation believes that we must spend atleast 15 minutes a day serving humanity.
Carry those 15 mins/ day over a period of a year and you can get at least 3 days to do just this. That is what Life is Great stands for- bringing people who want to help with the resources they need to do it together at a place/ community where both were desperately needed
LIG Global Foundation was born when a few good doctors were shaken by the catastrophic suffering and deaths caused by the Haitian earthquake of 2010. They realized that just donating money to various causes was not enough the solution. This group of doctors was soon joined by many more volunteers all associated with healthcare in one way or another. Their primary aim was to provide a global community in which everyone will have access to up-to-date surgical equipment and excellent health-care.
The purpose of the LIG Global Foundation:
To deliver reliable, excellent medical care to people around the world who have little or no access to it.
To serve as a hub for donations to people with unmet needs from people and companies with resources.
Educate healthcare professionals to do medical volunteerism.
Bring attention to people and communities in dire need through photojournalism
