Saving Lives in Ethiopia

Ashley Wilkins - Hand of Hope Medical Missions Coordinator

No matter how often we travel around the globe during the year doing medical/dental outreaches, helping to save a life is always an unforgettable moment. We are currently in a remote part of Ethiopia with our medical/dental team. Each day we have thousands of people show up at our clinic to receive the care we have come to give. Sara was one patient that immediately stood out to our team as we could see she was severely malnourished and in need of quick medical attention before she would die. We carried her into our nutrition room and slowly began the process of re-nourishing her body and placed her in our feeding program where she will continue to be nursed back to health.

Because this outreach was made possible by the partners of Joyce Meyer Ministries, babies like Sara have been found and helped this week. Thank you for helping us be the hands and feet of Jesus in Ethiopia!

Hand of Hope is the missions arm of Joyce Meyer Ministries. Our goal is simply to help as many hurting people as we possibly can, to alleviate human suffering and to help Christians grow in their faith.
