GoalThe goal of this project is to provide medical care to rural communities in India.
SummaryThis White Cross project seeks to raise $29,412 per year to provide medical supplies for hospitals, clinics and mobile medical units in North East India.
DescriptionThrough the Council of Baptist Churches in North East India (CBCNEI), White Cross helps to support nine hospitals, clinics and mobile units that serve in the hills and villages of northeastern India. These services provide much needed medical care to rural communities that would not otherwise have access. Special attention is given to children suffering from malnutrition, and training and awareness camps help deal with human rights, community building and health issues. The purpose is to raise awareness of health issues while providing medical care for people with serious medical concerns in remote parts of India. These projects will be managed by hospital administrators within International Ministries partner organizations. It is anticipated that, with access to medical care, the lives of many will be improved.
Suggested GiftsA gift of $100 provides medications and vitamins for one mobile unit. $250 provides baby blankets, gowns, nurses uniforms, aprons, linens and small surgical instruments. $500 provides medications, vitamins, IV sets, disposable needles, cotton, gloves, adhesive, gauze, plastic sheeting, syringes and deworming pills.
Prayer RequestsPray for committed OB/GYN doctors and surgeons to fill the need for permanent physicians in hospitals. Pray for resources to replace old equipment and improve the medical infrastructure in India. Pray for improved relationships between Christians and those of other faiths.
