Our Grant Recipients

Founded in 1992, MedSend has empowered more than 650 healthcare professionals serving in areas of deep physical and spiritual need by alleviating the burden of student loan indebtedness to serve in healthcare missions. As healthcare providers, they are welcomed where others are not. MedSend grant recipients staff and run hospitals and clinics, usually involving the training and mentoring of Christian nationals into professional roles serving their own people. MedSend’s involvement around the world is transforming individuals, communities, and national healthcare systems through education programs and in conjunction with Ministers of Health.

MedSend National Scholars

Our MedSend National Scholars Program is a groundbreaking effort, helping national believers obtain advanced medical training and Christian mentoring. With this training, they can provide care for and share the Gospel with those who are poor and underserved within their home countries.

Working with our Associates, we rely on them to provide screening, training, assignment, oversight, and accountability for MedSend grant recipients.

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.
