While the world makes strides to recover from the pandemic, the impact of COVID-19 isn’t over yet. Around the world, accessible health care is needed, now more than ever.
Ongoing restrictions and lockdowns have been tough on health care professionals, families, and local leaders. This means that the ways care is provided have changed—especially for organizations like Medical Ministry International, which brings healthcare services to developing nations and works to establish and support Health Care Centers, increasing access to quality care.
Medical Ministry International provides spiritual and compassionate health care to countries around the world. Their work brings together traditional faith and cutting-edge technology to make healthcare more accessible, everywhere.
Claudia is an enthusiastic teacher from Ghana who has many ambitions for her future. Whether it’s pursuing higher education, starting a family, or serving her community—her story is yet to be written. But life came to an abrupt halt in her late 20s, when she developed non-cancerous growths called fibroids in her uterus.
It became clear that a myomectomy, a surgical procedure to remove the growth, was her only option. Not only was Claudia’s anemia impacting her quality of life, the fibroids in her uterus could destroy her chance of having children.
Fortunately, your compassion allowed MMI to be there! Despite a long and difficult surgery, the growth was removed and Claudia began her journey to recovery.
With your help, Claudia received financial support and personalized care. “MMI called me, prayed with me, and even visited me at home. The surgeons also made time to follow up with my doctors in Ghana,” says Claudia.
Stories like Claudia’s show the incredible value of compassionate support and spiritual care—both of which are made stronger through donor support.
In Azerbaijan, MMI has provided 10,000 vision services each year through the Caspian Compassion Project, a vision care center in Baku. MMI also works with the UNHCR to provide glasses to internally displaced people currently settled in Baku.
As care centres grow, MMI assists with specific needs for buildings, renovations, and equipment. Donor support makes an incredible impact in all areas of MMI’s work, but there are many more ways to support accessible healthcare worldwide. By joining a one or two-week Project Team as an international volunteer participant, you can put your skills to use and make a difference, building medical capacity for the long term.
As the team looks towards the future, they’re grateful to the donors and volunteers who have continued to support them.
