History

Taiwan Root Medical Peace Corps (TRMPC) is a private, non-sectarian, non-profit organization dedicated to improving quality of life through provision of medical services and health education. Founded in 1995, by the vision of Dr. Chi-Chun Liu, TRMPC joined talented medical personnel with enthusiastic volunteers to form a medical service group.

Initially, TRMPC focused on bringing medical care to indigenous populations inhabiting remote mountain areas of Taiwan. These communities, troubled by increasing problems of poverty, alcoholism, and teenage prostitution, have a much lower standard of living than the rest of the island. Poor transportation further marginalizes the population and hinders ready access to medical services. In 1998, TRMPC extended its services to populations in developing nations. Since then, TRMPC has provided free medical care to isolated populations, served in refugee camps, and treated victims of natural disasters. TRMPC has conducted about 357 medical mission trips both domestic and internationally by June 2018.

Please Briefly Describe Your Economic Model.
For 23 years, TRMPC has never public fundraised . For every member joined the international medical mission, they have to pay for their own airline tickets and local necessarily expenses for the trip. For the shortage of fund, Dr. Liu/president will provide personal fund as the sponsor.
