History of BAMM
Bay Area Medical Missions (BAMM) is a community of people who want to serve God and those in need using their collective gifts of time, talent and love.
Bay Area Medical Missions (BAMM) has its origin in a group of nearly 90 individuals who shared a common desire to live out their Christian faith by serving through short-term medical missions, primarily with Project Mercy in Ethiopia. Most of BAMM’s members live in the San Francisco Bay Area of California. Over time, this group became more organized with a growing desire to serve locally as well as internationally. In September 2021, Bay Area Medical Missions was founded as a subsidiary 501(c)3 and began life as an organized ministry with a ‘glocal’ focus: serving those in need both locally as well as internationally.
BAMM will serve as a hub for what will hopefully become an enlarging community of people, medical and non-medical, who are looking for ways to serve those in need locally and globally. BAMM will announce, organize and develop opportunities for local and global efforts.
