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.

His parents brought him in to see me because they thought he was also deaf, but today’s test showed otherwise. When I delivered… 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

I am officially a MedSend grant recipient.  Do you know what this   means? This means that when you can’t afford to, there may be other people who can afford to lift you up. Due to the hard work that MedSend puts into getting donations, we now don’t have to worry about making my monthly loan payments while we are in Guatemala. The generous people who donate to MedSend have us covered.

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.

This year has been another year of profound changes and turmoil in the world at large and at home.  I love MedSend because through it, I can engage the world beyond me in a way that offers people not only healthcare that they would not otherwise have, but also the opportunity for true healing and wholeness that comes only through faith in Jesus Christ.

When I first heard of MedSend some years ago, it was the most compelling talk I had ever heard for a nonprofit group.  Here was this doctor telling the audience that God had used his presence in Nigeria to essentially bring an entire tribe of over 80,000 people to the Lord through astonishingly miraculous means.
