About Medical ministry

WEC has been involved in medical work from its beginnings in the Congo, the Amazon and the Himalayas. Our members today run clinics and hospitals, offer expertise in fields like HIV-AIDS, ophthalmology, midwifery, dentistry, etc in several countries across Africa, Asia, and Central America.

One midwifery nurse writes: "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."
