Dr. Jacob and Medical Mission

Dr. Jacob is a founder and the president of NOMMS (New Orleans Medical Missions Services) which began in 2001. To date, 32 Medical Missions to Latin America have taken place where 37,562 eyeglasses have been dispensed and 1,510 surgeries have been performed. Additionally, NOMMS has made 114 shipments of medical supplies and equipment to various Latin American destinations. Local donations include goods and supplies to the Louisiana National Guard (post Katrina), City of New Orleans (post Katrina), Women's New Life Center, Servants of Mary, Second Harvest Food Bank, Catholic Charities, and the Daughters of Charity.

Most recently, NOMMS volunteers completed a Medical Mission to Leon, Nicaragua where 1,645 people were seen in our eye clinic and 45 surgeries were performed.
