In honor of the 30th Anniversary of the World Medical Mission Foundation in 2016, Filipino singer, Lourdes Duque Baron, has established the 501(c)(3) Hope For The World Foundation to launch the first annual fundraising campaign.

Over the years, the World Medical Mission has helped hundreds of thousands of those in need.

To commemorate the anniversary and launch the campaign, Lourdes Duque Baron will hold a benefit concert in January 2015 at Boulevard 3 in Hollywood, California. The singer, who recently launched her music career with the release of her debut CD, Feeling Good At Any Age, explains her music is a stepping-stone to this greater mission.
