2022 was an exciting year for TRIMEDX Foundation. As travel resumed, and COVID restrictions lifted, the organization emerged stronger than ever. Thanks to the generosity of so many, more than $250,000 in annual contributions were received. These gifts allowed the organization to travel across 214,498 miles, supporting healthcare facilities in six different countries while completing 29 mission trips with 42 volunteers.
