“I thank my God every time I remember you.” - Philippians 1:3

Your gift to MedSend can be a special way to honor someone or mark the joy of a special occasion, while helping spiritually and medically needy people around the world.

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.

Your gift helps activate the movement of God's people to the field. Will you join us in ensuring that eager Christ-following health professionals are able to serve the Lord through global healthcare missions?
