Healthcare mission support organization concludes milestone year in 2017
April 30, 2018– STRATFORD, CT –MedSend, a non-profit ministry today announced the release of its 2017 Annual Report. The report details the ministry’s impact during its milestone 25th anniversary year. Notably, the ministry announced that it had approved its 650th grant and had exceeded more than $17 million in educational funding.
MedSend addresses the critical global shortage of healthcare professionals by removing educational debt as an obstacle for US trained health professionals to serve, in a faith-based context, within some of the lowest resourced areas of the world. In addition to relieving the educational loan repayment obligations of US trained professionals, MedSend provides scholarships to provide advanced training for such as surgery, obstetrics/gynecology, and pediatrics to national doctors in the country or region when they live and work.
“At the conclusion of 2017, I am both inspired and encouraged to report that we supported over 200 healthcare workers, serving globally, and over 200,000 received compassionate care in the name of Christ, ” said Rick Allen, MedSend President and CEO.
