If you are in need of medical care and you do not have health insurance, there are free clinics in the Valley that may be able to help.
It's called Mission of Mercy and they have free clinics that are open from Monday through Thursday 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. all over the Valley at five different locations.
The only qualification is you have a medical need or you can't afford to go to a regular doctor.
In addition, if you need medication after being seen at one of Mission of Mercy's clinics they will get that prescription filled as part of their free service.
You can get it filled at the clinic, too.
In order to be seen you need to make an appointment.
Sometimes they can take drop-ins, but you may get turned away.
One hundred or more patients can be seen during their daily clinics.
Mission of Mercy is only operated through private donations and most of the doctors and nurses are volunteers.
So this mission is done by people who want to give to those that truly need it. One of the main components this organization needs right now are doctors to volunteer.
