Our Global Reach

Learn more about the United MegaCare story, our history, our global reach, and how you can get involved with our mission today.

One of the ways that we equip underserved populations to be more self-sufficient is achieved by our construction efforts. Through strategic partnerships, United MegaCare has successfully constructed a 10-mile pipeline to provide clean water for the people of Kenya. Additionally, our team has built 14 water stations to combat water scarcity in Africa. Leveraging our international partnerships, United MegaCare has also played an integral role in helping people obtain access to quality healthcare.
