“Helping Others To Help Themselves”

In 1990, Dr. Roy Streete and a group of caring individuals, who wanted to improve the quality of life for people living in the underserved areas of the world, founded The Organization for International Development, Inc. (OID). OID is concerned not only with the healthcare and economic needs of the poor but also with their training, educational, and employment needs; so that they may be better able to provide for themselves and their families. OID is a nonprofit, nonpolitical organization registered by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) organization which makes all contributions tax-deductible. The group is comprised of professionals in the fields of education, healthcare, engineering, computer science, and technology.


The group is comprised of professionals in the fields of education and healthcare dental care, medical treatment, nursing care, physical therapy, education and counseling on disease prevention, and health maintenance. In addressing the inextricably linked healthcare and social needs of our patients, we support essential programs that facilitate sustainable community development which improve our patients’ lives by strengthening their communities and renewing their hope for the future. On each mission, we hold health education workshops covering topics such as healthy lifestyle options, nutritional wellness, health maintenance, and disease prevention skills. We assist with the school fees of talented low-income students, donate computer equipment and school supplies, and support community improvement projects (i.e. the building of the Mt. Hannah Community Library and Resource Center in rural Jamaica). We have conducted international medical missions to Jamaica, Brazil, Dominican Republic, Grenada, Haiti, Carriacou & Petit Martinique, St. Vincent - Bequia and Canon & The Grenadines, St. Lucia, India, Ghana, Nigeria, Ethiopic, Kenya, Zambia, South Africa and United States.
