The Importance of Medical Missions

The Importance of Medical Missions

- by Hand of Hope 2 MIN READ

For most of us, it’s an ordinary thing to go to the doctor when we’re sick or need treatment. It’s something we can easily take for granted.

But for millions of people around the world, access to essential health services isn’t even an option. Some families literally save their money for years just to be able to see a doctor or specialist.

Maybe the greatest tragedy is that millions needlessly suffer and even die from illnesses that can be so easily avoided.

Joyce Meyer Ministries’ involvement in medical missions began in 2005, after Joyce herself endured a painful personal medical issue. For her, that experience was an eye-opener. She thought, What would it be like to permanently live with this kind of pain…with no hope of ever getting well? Thus began our medical and dental outreaches around the world.

Today, we fully fund a hospital in Cambodia and support a dental clinic in Israel. We also support medical clinics and mobile medical units in Ethiopia, Haiti, El Salvador and India. In addition, we have reached hundreds of thousands of lives through our short-term medical and dental outreaches in places like Zambia, Dominican Republic, Uganda, Peru, and so many other nations.

Our goal is simple: We want to reach out with God’s love and help as many people as we can. Thank you for supporting Hand of Hope and bringing these life-changing services to those in need around the world.
