Help Women Answer God’s Call – and Double Your Impact!
“I remember watching her leave the hospital without the care she desperately needed, likely to go home and die,” recalls Gloria Lang*, RN. The pregnant woman Gloria saw on a short-term trip to South Asia was bleeding heavily and needed emergency medical care. But her husband would not let her be seen by a male doctor – and no female healthcare provider was available.
“It was at that moment that I felt a tremendous opportunity as a female to care for these vulnerable women,” Gloria says. Today Gloria is among the growing group of female Christian healthcare professionals willing to respond to God’s call – but who need MedSend grants to do so. Our most recent class was 73% female, most of whom are planning to serve in difficult and dangerous places – the very regions where cultural constraints often keep women from seeing male caregivers, so female healthcare workers are most urgently needed.
We are excited to announce that a well-known foundation has awarded MedSend a $28,000 matching grant. We will use these funds to make it possible for more female healthcare professionals to serve where they are called.
These are women like Gloria and Anna True*, MD, MPH, both of whom were recently approved for MedSend grants.
“We will have the privilege of caring for hundreds, if not thousands, of patients who would otherwise have limited access to medical care – particularly women,” says Dr. True, who plans to serve Syrian refugees in the Middle East. “We will be able to pray for and offer hope to these precious and broken folks. The practice of medicine will give us access into peoples’ lives, opening a path for us to share the gospel in a culturally relevant and honoring way.”
