Christian Medical Care: a national network

dsc_0315_small“A Christian hospital does not exist”, states the medical director of the only  Protestant Mission hospital in Senegal. Confusion arises in the room of this first national conference for Christians working in healthcare.” The over 60 participants wonder how they can make a difference and a significant contribution to healthcare in Senegal. The medical director challenges us again: “The difference is in US”.

dsc_0126_smallThrough the story of the Good Samaritan we discover what it means to have true compassion. As a nurse or doctor in Senegal this often implies sacrificing comfort, wealth, and time off for the wellbeing of the patients. Christs sets us an example in his sacrifice, now it is up to us to follow in his steps.

dsc_0099_smallTabitha has the privilege to initiate and facilitate this movement and network of Christian health projects. More important than this annual conference are the contacts and training sessions that improve the everyday practice for quality healthcare. Tabitha regularly travels to the villages to give medical training and to help implement new health services. Together we can make a difference in the country!
