Mission Statement and Purpose
Intermed International, Inc. / DBA Dooley Intermed International is a non-profit, non-governmental, non-sectarian, non-political, private voluntary organization receiving its financial support from private contributions. The purpose of the organization is to provide medical assistance to refugees, children, and villagers in the less privileged parts of the world with emphasis on self-help projects in the areas of preventive medicine, public health, family planning and health worker training. Dooley Intermed presently supports medical aid projects in three countries: Nicaragua, Nepal and India.
Empowering Female Healthcare Workers
In 2018 Dooley Intermed initiated a training program for these female healthcare workers, a first. Our goal was to empower the women with new skills and knowledge while greatly enhancing the quality of care rendered to remote villagers. Our first class of 20 students from Lele Village completed a 40-hour intensive training program conducted by professional instructors and including textbooks, teaching materials and basic medical equipment. Upon completion of the course, each woman received a comprehensive medical kit equipped with a stethoscope, blood pressure cuff, thermometer, scale, medical references and basic supplies. Most importantly, they are now empowered with new knowledge and skills.
The need for this type of training is immense, with many similar groups of volunteer healthcare workers seeking similar training. It costs about $6,500 USD to conduct a training class. Please let us know if you would like to sponsor a class, empower these remarkable female healthcare workers, and help bring ongoing medical care to remote villages in one of the world’s most impoverished countries.
New Eye Hospital in Dhalkebar, Nepal
Working with our Nepal based partners, we recently initiated construction of a brand new 3-story full-service Eye Hospital in Dhalkebar Nepal, near the border of India. This is an area of great need with a very large disadvantaged population.
The new Hospital will provide care to an estimated one hundred thousand patients per year from multiple districts in Nepal and nearby bordering districts of India. Our goal with this new Eye Hospital is to profoundly improve the quality of life of thousands who are suffering from blindness or visual impairment. By preventing blindness and restoring sight we also dramatically help reduce poverty.
The required land has been donated by the local Municipality, and the access roadway has been completed, the boundary wall built, and a deep water well has been completed. Construction has just started, and we have secured a sponsor for the first floor, additional sponsors for all the required medical equipment. With the donations of land and labor, we have sufficient funding in-hand to initiate construction of the first floor and part of the second floor.
Outreach Eye Mission-Operation Restore Sight team members and Dooley Intermed “Gift of Sight” mission
2018 Gumghadi Nepal, Eye Mission to Nepal’s most remote district
Operation Restore Sight team members, working closely with Dooley Intermed International organized an expedition focused on providing urgently needed ophthalmic care to villagers in an extremely remote and impoverished region near Rara Lake in the Mugu District, known for being the most remote region in Nepal, and among the least developed. The Operation Restore Sight surgical team members traveled by bush plane to a small airstrip at 9,000’ then by 4WD and by foot the team along a mountain trail to Gumghadi Village for the multi-day “eye camp” providing comprehensive eye examinations, refractions, eye glasses, medical care and sight-restoring surgeries.

AIRINTERMED In Nepal
AirIntermed is a unique opportunity for airline employees to participate in programs devoted to improving health conditions for the people of Nepal. The Airline volunteers will be working at the Eco Home for Orphaned Children Volunteer Service Program in the Sankkhu–Sharada Village, Nepal in cooperation with Airline Ambassadors International and Mission Himalaya, Kathmandu.
The Ngoenga School for Children with Special Needs
We are continuing our support for the Ngoenga School. This program was initiated in 2015 when Dooley Intermed funded the purchase of much-needed physical therapy equipment and special orthopedic shoes for these disabled children. This is the only school in existence for disabled Tibetan and Himalayan children.
Since 1986 Dooley Intermed has provided medical equipment, a full-time physician and nurse to a small clinic in the town of Waspam for a community-based maternal-child health program benefiting mostly women and children of the Miskito and Mayagna people. Waspam is located on the Coco River which borders between Nicaragua and Honduras.
Dooley/Intermed presently provides funding for medicines and supplies and supports the stipends of the following Santa Ines Clinic staff: the Senior Physician/Sonographer, the Coordinator of Maternal Services, the Laboratory Director, the Assistant Project Coordinator, two Educator Nurses, and one Assistant Nurse/ Dental Assistant. In line with our long term policy of promoting self-sufficiency and community development, all the Clinic staff is native Nicaraguan, and most belong to the Miskito Indian ethnicity, originating from the same villages served by this program.
