In Ethiopia, there is a pervasive lack of knowledge regarding simple to treat medical conditions, which results in a great deal of unnecessary suffering. In November, a local pastor was in a bajaj (vehicular) accident. He underwent successful surgery to place pins in his leg, but later suffered severe infection due to lack of proper wound care. A visiting missionary put him on the path to recovery by simply cleaning and dressing the wound daily for 10 days.
In recent years, we have felt increasingly called to improve the healthcare opportunities for our children, their families, and the local community. God has answered our prayers in a big way and we’re so excited to share news with you that we are building a medical clinic on the grounds of the Bethlehem Campus of the BCI Academy.
The clinic will allow low and middle income families will have access to education, diagnosis and treatment of a variety of health conditions, with referral to advanced facilities when needed. Our students will be able to shadow and learn from medical professionals, and apply to work at the center upon graduation from medical school. Medical missionaries will have resources at their disposal to serve the ministry. The clinic will be financially self-sustaining once in use.
There are many opportunities to become involved in this historic ministry project. Current needs include:
$2,000 USD to finish water and electrical installation
$20,000 to finish the floors, walls and ceilings with easy to clean surfaces
$5,000 each for dialysis and x-ray machines (high quality, used condition)
Any amount to help with the purchase of lab tools, centrifuge microscope, and specialized equipment.
Please reach out if you’d like to get involved.
