For almost 30 years, Dr. David Nichols, DDS has been regularly leading a group of volunteers to the jungles of Belize and Guatemala to administer much needed medical, surgical, and dental care to the native residents of the region. Volunteers pay their own travel expenses with additonal support coming from Tyler Rotary Clubs and Tejas Mission, Inc.
Dr. Nichols, an active member and Past President of the Tyler Rotary Club, is the founder and President of Tejas Missions, Inc., a charitable medical mission organization. Tejas Missions has also partnered with Tyler Sunrise Rotary to help provide educational opportunities for the Mayan Indian children of Southern Belize.
Medical mission trips are usually for one week and involve physicians, dentists, nurses, and volunteers from varied backgrounds. Please contact Dr. David Nichols at Tyler Rotary if you have interest in this mission.
Back home in Texas, Tejas Missions, Inc. partners with the Texas Dental Association Smiles Foundation, Bethesda Health Clinic, Youth With A Mission, local churches, and Tyler Rotary to sponsor Texas Mission of Mercy of East Texas providing free medical and dental care for the financially strained.
