Several times a year, Jewish Voice and teams of outreach partners who volunteer their time offer desperately needed, free medical and dental care to poverty-stricken Jewish communities in Africa and India. We strategically plan our clinic schedule throughout the year to reach as many needy people around the world as possible.
The first JVMI medical outreach clinic was in Gondar, Ethiopia in 1999, where we treated 1,300 patients. Those small beginnings have grown, thanks to the blessings of God, our skilled staff, and dedicated outreach partners. Now we treat an average of nearly 8,000 patients per short-term medical mission trip.
Through serving the Jewish People and their neighbors in this way in communities of Ethiopia, India, and Zimbabwe we have also welcomed thousands into God’s kingdom as they have come to faith in Yeshua.
Each patient and those with them are invited into our prayer room where they have the opportunity to receive compassionate prayer and hear the Gospel of Yeshua (Jesus). This provides a unique opportunity for non-medical professionals to participate in our medical outreaches. In fact, while we need medical professionals, non-medical partners are essential to the success and vision of our outreaches.
The heartbeat of our medical outreach ministry is changed lives. Yours will be changed, too.
