Inside the annual report you will find out how your journey with MedSend in 2017 has blessed those in need around the world.
God continues to use MedSend healthcare professionals to provide one on one compassionate care in the name of Christ and to train national doctors. Healthcare remains a highly effective form as a Christian witness in many difficult areas. As you review the report, will you prayerfully consider how you can partner with us in supporting the work of medical missions this year?
How We Serve
MedSend, along with the generosity of donors, serves individuals called to global healthcare outreach by providing them with financial support for educational debt while they are serving on the mission field. MedSend believes that by enabling these professionals to serve spiritually and physically needy people while on the mission field fosters God’s healing work throughout the world.
MedSend’s grant recipients fall into 11 professional categories, all healthcare specialties that are well-equipped to address the most acute needs in some of the world’s most vulnerable places.
Where We Serve
More than 75 countries around the world are currently being touched by the work of MedSend healthcare providers supported by MedSend. These countries are found in 11 regions: Africa, Asia, North America, the Caribbean, Central America, Eurasia, Europe, the Middle East, Pacific, and Multinational.
God’s Love in Action
MedSend grant recipients have many inspirational and incredible stories to share. You’ll read some of them in the 2017 Annual Report, but we have many more on our blog, “Going Deeper.”
In the 25 year history of MedSend, we have served more than 200 healthcare professionals and provided more than $17 million in funding. Our 25th anniversary video (below) tells more of the story of our ministry.
Why This Matters
The situation is dire on a global scale. According to the World Health Organization (W.H.O.), the world needs seven million more healthcare professionals to meet for a minimum standard of patient care worldwide. 57 countries are at a crisis point, with fewer than 2.3 nurses, doctors and other medical personnel for every 1,000 people – too few to deliver even the most basic level of care. And the gap between number of patients and number of healthcare professionals is poised only to grow.
