The World Health Organization contends that at least 1.2 billion people globally are affected by “neglected tropical diseases, chronic disabling infections” caused by poverty, and weak health systems. This year alone nearly 1 million people will die from malaria, mostly children under five years old. Another 1.9 million will gradually waste away and perish because of intestinal parasites that could have been cured.
This work involves warehousing medications and medical supplies received from pharmaceutical donors and dispensing the donations to qualified medical teams serving the poor worldwide. While helping to meet the physical needs of these suffering populations, these medical teams also extend the healing love of Jesus Christ in all they do.
