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 Nationals

Our MedSend Nationals is a groundbreaking program that is helping national believers obtain the advanced medical training and Christian mentoring they need to serve people who are poor and underserved in their home countries resulting in much-needed quality and compassionate healthcare, as well communicating the good news and compassion of Christ.

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.

What MedSend is Doing About It

  • Bringing Hope to the World

    Mobilizing Healthcare Workers to Serve Around the World (freeing them up and removing the greatest barrier)

  • Giving Hope to the People in the Field

    Providing Medical Training and Discipleship while Caring and Encouraging the Person

Healthcare remains the only form of access as a Christian witness in many countries.
