About

What We Do

MedSend makes it possible for highly qualified and dedicated Christian healthcare professionals to bring healthcare – and the good news of Jesus’ love – to people in need around the world. MedSend healthcare professionals staff and run mission hospitals and rural clinics and are involved in community health education and training and mentoring national caregivers. As healthcare professionals, many are welcomed in areas that are off-limits to other Christian workers.

How We Do It

For MedSend healthcare professionals from the U.S., we provide grants that remove the obstacle of educational debt and specialized training to equip them for the unique challenges they face. For MedSend Nationals healthcare professionals, we provide grants that fund advanced medical training, Christian mentoring and leadership training.

Why We Do It

To a world reeling with physical and spiritual suffering, MedSend healthcare professionals bring the best healthcare education and training our society has to offer. And they bring the only true power to change hearts and lives: God’s love.

By Melody Miller, RN Nighttime has always been my favorite. My favorite time to eat, work, read, and play. The air is fresh and my mind miraculously clears with the setting sun. On that fateful day, I stayed at work a little late to tick the final things off my list. I don’t know about… Read More

Poverty… a name that immediately brings Africa to your mind. But why? What exactly does this word “poverty” mean?

“A deficiency of necessary or desirable ingredients, qualities, etc.”

Why do we always assume that refers to money? Yes, a component of a poverty-stricken land is lack of monetary means. By these standards, anyone would consider Zambia poor. From the outside looking in, you can see the statistics. Over 64% of the population lives below the “poverty line.” (Living on less than $1.90 per day, or just under 20 kwacha). For the new foreigner coming to Zambia, you can see “poverty” everywhere you walk, particularly in the rural areas. Considering the worldly view, Zambia is poor…

Testimonials

Since Christian Veterinary Mission joined MedSend in 2004, CVM has been blessed by the partnership MedSend provides to help in mobilizing veterinary professionals. Not only have they helped to relieve the burden of educational debt on our missionaries, but they also have provided wise counsel to candidates on how to minimize and manage debt prior to going on the field.

Healthcare missions is the key to penetrating difficult to access countries and completing the Great Commission. The greatest barrier for those desiring to serve is educational debt. MedSend has eliminated it, enabling hundreds of missionaries to bring health and the gospel around the world. They are fueling a renaissance in medical missions!

I am so grateful for the support of MedSend.  Words cannot describe how great of a blessing this it to our family.  There was someone who prayed for me six years ago that said who God would completely take care of my student loans.  This grant is an answer to six years of prayers.  Most importantly, there will be so many lives changed because of your help.

I knew becoming a pediatrician was hard work, and I knew I would incur a lot of debt in order to achieve that goal. However, I also knew that with God, all things are possible, and that He would find a way for me to serve Him in His beautiful world. Now, because you are helping me with this debt, I am able to fulfill my calling sooner than I ever imagined. I cannot tell you how thankful I am for your part in our ministry!
