MEMO is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, student-run, humanitarian organization that seeks to serve the underprivileged by addressing their medical and educational needs. We are comprised of volunteer students, physicians, and other health professionals. Every year, we raise money and medical supplies to send back to Vietnam. Of the group of volunteers, students from UCI, UCLA, and UCSD have the opportunity to travel to Vietnam to witness the beautiful impact our help provides.MEMO’s primary goal is to provide medical care and educational opportunities to the impoverished villagers in Vietnam. By supplying the villagers with the fundamental needs (health and education) deprived of them by poverty, MEMO hopes to give them a foundation in which they can raise themselves out of their current living conditions. MEMO also aims to spread awareness of the abject poverty seen in third world countries to the younger generation in the U.S. to propagate the notion of social responsibility into a brighter future.
