Medical emergencies include any medical need that a person may need that we try to help provide for. This includes helping people fundraise for a medical emergency for a family member, a friend, or even a stranger that we see a need for and want to help provide financial assistance for them. We have helped medical emergencies in Indonesia, Mexico, Uganda, and the United States and we continue to help new causes.
