Welcome to Canvasback Missions
Are you wondering what we do? We send several medical mission teams to the Marshall Islands every year. Our mission field is growing too. Our volunteer medical professionals ministeries provide various kinds of medical and dental services to the people of the Micronesia Islands throughout the year.
It is phone-a-thon time for Canvasback Missions. When you donate to Canvasback Missions, your gift makes a big impact - every $1 you donate provides $4-20 worth of care. We are able to do this with volunteer medical teams, donated hospital equipment, and low administrative costs.
Want to help us? You can make a financial gift online or call us at: (800) 793-7245. Help us show the love of God through the gift of healing hands.

Diabetes Education To Improve Their Health
The Diabetes Wellness Center located on the island of Majuro, Marshall Islands, is a joint effort started by Canvasback Missions and the RMI Ministry of Health in 2005. Canvasback Missions was awarded a grant from the U.S. Department of Defense, to prove that lifestyle changes in diet and exercise can successfully address diabetes in the Marshall Islands. The World Diabetes Foundation established the grant project to educate Marshallese school children and their parents on how to prevent and reduce the incidence of type 2 diabetes and improve general health. This project was a collaborative effort with our Diabetes Wellness Center, the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Health. The project included educational videos, read more about the project and see the videos.
