This late summer, the New Orleans Medical Mission Services Foundation hosted its annual fund-raiser, “Mission Possible” at Southport Hall. Enjoying the cocktails, food, raffle and live and silent auctions were
local doctors and supporters of the group.

The NOMMS is a not-for-profit organization that donates medical
services to qualified groups in foreign countries. NOMMS provides direct
medical intervention and donates medical equipment, supplies and instruments. Founded in 2001 by local doctors and businessmen, the group now has more than 200 volunteers consisting of nurses, doctors, other medical professionals and non-medical professionals. Recent missions have been to Ecuador and Nicaragua.
