What's it like to be a medical missionary?

"Three mornings a week I work at a local hospital. Together with a local nurse we encourage women with newborn babies to breastfeed their infant.

“We have only a few minutes with each mother yet it is a great opportunity to share God’s love with these young women at a very special, precious and at the same time vulnerable moment of their lives." (a midwife)

"I have loved my time at Sibanor with WEC. I have had the opportunity to learn new skills, develop in confidence as a doctor, and grow in my Christian faith. It has been a huge privilege to be welcomed by the Gambian people and to serve alongside the amazing missionary team here." (Doctor Will)
