Dr. Thomas Dillard and Heather Martin founded Triad Pediatrics in 2018 with the goal of not only providing pediatric care in the Triad region of North Carolina but also allowing providers every couple of years to go to another place in the world in need and provide medical care for one or two months. This desire led to the founding of the Triad Pediatrics Foundation. During the provider's time away, the foundation would provide a stipend to cover basic living expenses. Mission hospitals around the world often have needs for certain medical supplies and equipment. In addition to serving, a goal of the foundation is to spearhead fundraisers to address these needs. Short-term teams of staff members from Triad Pediatrics from time to time will travel to different places to serve and provide medical care as well. Funds raised by the foundation will help support and allow staff to go and serve without significant personal expense. Triad Pediatrics Foundation is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization.
Triad Pediatrics Foundation exists to increase awareness and take action in hopes of alleviating suffering. Our goal is to serve those who need it most both locally and globally and offer not only physical help but also spiritual help as we believe only true healing comes from the Lord.
Currently our areas of focus are Kenya, West Africa, and Guatemala. As we continue to grow and are able to do more we hope to expand our reach. Dr. Dillard is currently serving at Tenwek Mission Hospital in Kenya. Visit our Tenwek Giving page for specific needs that you can give towards.
