North Africa/Middle East Jan 11 - 19, 2019, SR1400

Opportunity Overview

This trip is now closed.  Please explore our other trip opportunities at www.ghotrips.org.

This team will be bare bones with 8-12 participants (4 primary care providers, including an OB/GYN, plus a dentist, a nurse, a pharmacist, and one non-medical person to run a reading glass clinic), and though small, the team will very strategically provide primary medical and dental care.  The team will work in a new government-sponsored health post in this nation.  After arriving in the international airport and purchasing visas, the team will stay in a guesthouse and travel a short distance to the clinic site each day.  The residents of the area where the clinic is located are often recent immigrants and are very poor.  The government is seeking to provide healthcare for them and has invited our team in to help.

Our national partners know the language and culture and have excellent working relationships with the government authorities.  They are  a joy with whom to work. Last January was our second mission there and was an incredible experience. We anticipate repeat visits as we come alongside the government authorities as they meet the needs of this community. The hospitality shown to the team by the local authorities, especially the mayor, was amazing and humbling. There is great need in this country, where most of the people we will see have little or no access to medical care. Malnutrition is a significant problem among the children as well. Would you prayerfully consider joining me on this "extraordinary adventure" God has provided?
