About Medical Ministry
WEC International has been involved in development through medical
work from its beginnings in the 1920s – in the Congo, the Amazon, and
WEC helps local churches run clinics and hospitals, offering expertise in fields like HIV-AIDS, ophthalmology, midwifery and dentistry. Our medical staff have served in several countries across Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Central America.
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." (Dr Will)
Dr Helen Roseveare, who developed hospitals in the Congo, and overcame incredible challenges, said 'Jesus is worth it'.

About Central Asia
WEC is involved in serving communities throughout Central Asia.
We are working in a variety of roles, alongside other Christian agencies, and with the local church where it exists. Our desire is to see the peoples of this region come to faith in Jesus, gathered into communities of believers, and discipled so that they can disciple others.
WEC’s diverse ministry in Central Asia includes missional business, education, English teaching, medical care and development work.
We cannot give details online about the countries, situations and opportunities we have found where you can serve in Central Asia, but we will be able to tell you more when you meet us face to face.
