Giving the ‘gift of health’ to people living in poverty.
According to the World Health Organization (2018), Ukraine’s health rating falls behind not only the developed western nations but also all countries of the former Soviet Union.
Despite the poor quality of medical care, every medical service or procedure requires an up-front payment or bribe. Since most people cannot afford this, poor families, and the elderly, especially those in rural areas of Ukraine, do not get adequate basic health care.
What happens to impoverished families suffering from serious illness or emergency medical concerns? Because of our extensive network of Church partnerships throughout Ukraine and Moldova, we are repeatedly called on to help in medical situations like these.
YOUR SUPPORT of our medical projects is critical to thousands of poor families, especially now during the Covid19 pandemic. The cost for testing, medical care if infected, and recovery medicines are beyond the reach of most citizens. Help us work through our partner churches to bring health and hope to thousands. YOUR SUPPORT can save lives!
