$2090 + Airfare

CLOSED EXCEPT FOR - PharmD, Dentists

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), pastors and a trip photographer/videographer on all of our general medicine and dentistry trips.

GHO has the privilege of serving again in this area of The Gambia. They are in desperate need of 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 indigenous 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 plan 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.
