The mission schedule for Children’s Lifeline varies depending upon the requests received from the medical teams’ leader or coordinator. A request, with dates, country of destination and a breakdown of financial needs is submitted to the Mission Coordinator at Children’s Lifeline. Upon approval, from Children’s Lifeline, the mission is set into the schedule with the appropriate budget. The goal is to send two medical mission trips every month. There are times when we are fortunate enough to be able to schedule and send more than two missions per month.
