Global Medical Relief Program
The Global Medical Relief Program is a nationwide student organization that strives to make quality health care available to people around the world. By providing doctors and other health care professionals with the equipment and resources they need, GlobeMed facilitates the growth of solid health care infrastructure in developing regions—where it is needed most. The most important tenet of the philosophy of GlobeMed is their firm belief in the competence and compassion of local health care professionals. GlobeMed believes in the fundamental human right to health and adequate health care that is too-often thwarted by lack of funding, resources, and facilities in underdeveloped countries. The organization also realizes that donating supplies, while vital to reaching our goal, is only part of the solution to the world health crisis. Thus, in addition to regular shipments of medical supplies, GlobeMed's growing mission has come to include raising funds for promotion of health education, sponsoring disaster-relief drives, and networking with dozens of organizations worldwide such as NAEIF.
  Healing the Culture
Healing the Culture is a nonprofit educational organization which seeks to build a pro-life culture by inspiring individuals to uphold the intrinsic dignity of every human person, and by helping them to live for deeper meaning and purpose. We believe that abortion, euthanasia, and other threats against human life and dignity are caused by profoundly unhealthy attitudes in our culture. Specifically, our culture has misguided notions about happiness, success, quality of life, love, sexuality, suffering, ethics, freedom, personhood, rights, and the common good. All of these misguided notions contribute significantly to a "culture of death." To remedy this, we train teachers, pastors, religious educators, counselors, medical professionals, political leaders, and other persons of influence to cultivate healthier notions of these terms among their constituencies. We provide materials, resources, networks, speakers, retreats, training seminars, consultations, video and DVD learning systems, school curricula, articles, and other resources which aim to transform cultural attitudes and beliefs in ways that affirm the intrinsic dignity of the person and lead to a pro-life culture. Healing the Culture was founded in 2003 by Robert J. Spitzer, S.J. (President of Gonzaga University) and Camille De Blasi. is a proud member of OTELS, the largest family of hotel websites in the world. Through over 100 sister sites such as,,,, and, OTELS offers travelers fun, fast, & informative ways to reserve a hotel ... so you can relax and enjoy your trip. The multi-lingual staff at OTELS knows that visiting new cultures broadens and enriches minds of all ages, so "our mission is to donate 10% of profits to exchange programs for young and old in countries around the world, including the worthwhile offerings of the North American Leadership Institute."
