IRT is dedicated to alleviating human suffering worldwide and in the United States. Their two main fields are disaster response and building healthy communities. During disasters, IRT sends medical and reconstructive teams, provides supplies, and finances the reconstruction of infrastructure.
IRT emphasizes medical training programs, medical missions to low-income countries (including surgical and eyeglass teams), shipments of medicines to rural hospitals and clinics, and health, nutrition, and educational support. Between 1988 and November 1, 2016, they provided $342 million in medicines and supplies to needy families in 68 countries across the planet.
