Untold numbers of the world’s poor suffer debilitating and life-threatening illnesses with no hope of medical care. They feel blessed if they can meet their family’s most basic needs of food, shelter and, for those a little more fortunate, an education for their children. This ministry exists for them.
Most members of our spiritual family around the world have no medical insurance, and many cannot afford even a visit to a doctor—if there is a doctor in their region. Hospitals, when available, often require advance payment, an impossible hurdle for those who are ill and poor.
