Mission Statement

Chiropractic for the World Foundation operates as a Canadian not-for-profit registered charitable entity to build and provide workable lasting solutions worldwide in health, education, and poverty.

Qualified Doctors of Chiropractic, highly skilled, licensed diagnosticians from North America and team members travel around the world to confront many problems suffered by the indigent.

The foundation provides special assistance to those in need by working directly with them.

Quality chiropractic care is imperative and especially suited in both developed and underdeveloped regions of the world. Research has found chiropractic care invaluable and effective in restoring health and function to patients naturally, in most cases without the need for a large healthcare infrastructure.

Core Values

Integrity: We must be good stewards of all that we are given. Chiropractic is proven to be an effective approach to health without a need for a vast healthcare infrastructure. Chiropractic for the World Foundation is led by a group of dedicated and committed chiropractors from across Canada having the desire to make lasting notable changes to problems suffered throughout the world, particularly in underdeveloped regions . The foundation presents an opportunity for benefactors to make a lasting difference in developing countries without their donations being dwindled by high administrative costs.

Passion: Their highest calling as chiropractors is to give, to love and to serve and glorify God by bringing their gifts and talents to all regions of the world.

Experience: Dr. John Bickert, B.Ed., D.C, Chiropractic for the World Foundation, President was instrumental and founding member of a Canadian charity that operated in Canada for more than 25 years, and two 501(c)3 charities in the U.S.A., one that was founded in 1983 which continues to operate presently. The founders and past board members all have a strong dedication to chiropractic and to reach out and serve the community by love and service to others through chiropractic.

Knowledge: The directors have always been graduate chiropractors with years of professional education and clinical experience. They have a thirst for ongoing continuing education and cutting edge research. Their projects are carefully selected, which provides critical insight to the needs of each region.

Commitment: Driven by their passion of love for others and to serve God in their work of chiropractic and charity, they are committed to leaving a legacy of service, health and hope to each region / nation they touch.

Skills: Team members are skilled health and wellness professionals. Due to their commitment and passion to help others, they are capable of inspiring others to join them in their work.

Vision: We see lives being transformed in our everyday practices. Members envision this experience flowing through the walls of their individual practices to the boundaries of the earth, “adding millions of years to lives of millions of people.” (BJ Palmer)

Realism: Your generosity to fund our work is a way of touching and reaching out to others in a positive way. Each person we encounter in the work of reaching out with Love inspired by God touches those we embrace with God’s true goodness. That goodness is God’s love. We need your commitment, your time, your talent and contributions to continue reaching out touching one person at a time.

As one person said to Dr. John in the slum in India, “No one cares about me.”
He was able to reach out, embrace her and say, “Niton, I care!”
