Apr 22 2022 - May 1 2022

NOTE: GHO has a COVID plan to do our best to keep trip participants and our patients safe and healthy. We are watching country requirements closely. It is possible this mission will cancel in which case your application and funds will be moved to a future mission of your choice.

All team members must be Covid-19 vaccinated OR have documentable natural immunity by recent Covid infection along with a doctor’s note of recovery or by antibody testing to attend this mission trip.  All restrictions are dependent on the requirements of the country of destination.

*Special Travel Note: Due to COVID-19 restrictions and regulations, no deviations from the trip dates will be allowed unless arranged by the individual in communication with the team leader and the GHO Travel Coordinator. 

We welcome physicians, dentists, pharmacists, dermatologists, optometrists, ophthalmologists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, first responders, dental hygienists, dental assistants, physical/occupational therapists, students, servants (non-medical helpers), and a trip photographer/videographer on all of our general medicine and dentistry trips.

GHO has the privilege of serving for the second time in this area of West Africa. They are in desperate need for the Light of the Gospel. Our GHO partner is a growing church in this area of West Africa which is located in a beautiful ocean-side setting.

In mission partnership and service we pray God’s kingdom will advance through disciple-making and leadership development in this vibrant local church. The pastor was born and raised in the local service area and has a heart for the lost and hurting people of his country.

We will be serving by means of primary care medicine and dental services. As the Lord builds the team, we would also desire to have an eyeglass and children’s ministry.

There is growing excitement for this ministry opportunity. This is an excellent short-term Global Health rotation for students of all backgrounds, including healthcare students and undergraduate college students. It is also an excellent opportunity for families and spouses to serve! 

Please consider joining God’s work in this needy country. Join us as we serve and care for the least, the last, and the lost in Western Africa. Celebrate with us as we honor and glorify God through this wonderful mission opportunity.
