Updated Mission and Vision
After 19 years of assisting remote communities, FIRE has updated its Mission and Vision. FIRE is constantly assessing the best way to serve the communities, partners and individuals we work with. As they change, we must also develop and adapt with them. Thank you for joining us on the journey.  For more information about FIRE's mission, vision and values, please visit our  website.

FIRE works to improve health and development through value-centered, community-based programs encompassing cultural diversity and heritage.

Communities around the world are empowered with a higher quality of life through access to safe health care and sustainable resources for responsible development.
