The mission of Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) is to honor and empower wounded warriors. The organization's vision is to foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of injured service members in our nation’s history, by CONNECTING, SERVING, and EMPOWERING the wounded men and women who so bravely volunteered to serve our nation on or after the events of September 11, 2001. They CONNECT warriors, their families, and caregivers to peers, programs, and communities to ensure they have a readily available network of support. SERVE by providing free mental and physical health and wellness programs, career and benefits counseling, and by providing ongoing support for the most severely injured. And EMPOWER warriors to live life on their own terms, mentor fellow veterans and service members, and embody the WWP logo by carrying one another on a path toward recovery. Today, more than 110,000 wounded warriors and 26,000 family support members and caregivers are registered with WWP and have access to free programs and services that CONNECT, SERVE, and EMPOWER.

Our mission is a preferential option for the poor in health care. By establishing long-term relationships with sister organizations based in settings of poverty, Partners In Health strives to achieve two overarching goals: to bring benefits of modern medical science to those most in need of them and to serve as an antidote to despair. We draw on the resources of the world's leading medical and academic institutions and on the lived experience of the world's poorest and sickest communities. At its root, our mission is both medical and moral. It is based on solidarity, rather than charity alone. When our patients are ill and have no access to care, our team of health professionals, scholars, and activists will do whatever it takes to make them well- just as we would do if a member of our own families, or we ourselves, were ill.

“Maanavseva" (Service to Humans) is a Registered Non-Profit with a mission to fight malignancies including breast cancer among rural women in Indian villages. The mission is achieved through activities such as educating, creating awareness, conducting preventive examinations and mammogram screenings and facilitating the hand-holding of rural women with necessary follow-up and treatment.Maanavseva intends to implement this mission by adopting one village at a time and conducting 100% screening of all village women as per the health guidelines and implement follow-up on a sustained basis. The short term focus is to create a successful process for a cluster of villages that is replicable and sustainable. Maanavseva will achieve this goal through conducting pilot studies in villages, identify, resolve and document the challenges involved and arrive at a workable and sustainable model. The long term focus is to expand the model to several clusters of villages through sponsorship of corporations, local bodies and other Governmental Schemes. Most prevalent cancers for rural women can be cured by early detection and appropriate treatment. If these cancers are detected early, the cost is less, treatment is less invasive, survival rates are higher and the quality of life is better. Therefore we believe that by creating awareness about these cancers and early detection through mammogram and other screenings is extremely important and is the only way to win the war on breast cancer.
