2024 Vietnam Mission Team

Many members of the 2020 team will join us this year.

The IEP team is entirely made up of volunteers who share a passion for making a difference in a significant way.

IEP is a true volunteer organization. No one is paid for their efforts. We use our vacation time and are each responsible for covering the costs of airfare, hotel, and in-country travel through donations or our personal funds.

All our supplies are donated or purchased from donations. Most of what we don't use for patient procedures, we donate to the hospitals to help provide supplies that are harder to obtain locally.
