In many parts of the world, getting to healthcare when it is needed is not always possible. This is a challenge that The United Methodist Church has stepped in to meet. In Africa, UMC missionaries are working with communities to build hospitals and train volunteers to spread information about good health. Being proactive is the best way to prevent the need for hospital care.

United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) programs, sponsored by the General Board of Global Ministries and supported by dollars raised through The Advance, are helping to make healthcare attainable, accessible, and sustainable in the US and around the world.

Go to this Sunday, April 10, throughout the day, to hear Dr. Cherian Thomas, Director of Health Ministries for UMCOR, and missionary Ted Warnock share stories about the progress being made in Africa, highlighting the Kissy United Methodist Hospital in Sierre Leone and efforts in Mozambique.

There will be a live update from Dr. Thomas at 12 p.m. ET, with an opportunity to ask questions, or you can chat throughout the day with others who are interested in this project.

And don’t forget, while visiting, with one simple click of the mouse you can become an advocate of Healthcare in Africa and automatically raise $1 to support this project. Mission never stops. Be counted when you visit.

On the 10th of each month, features a different Advance Project, and we will hear from people closely involved who will report on the progress that is being made around the world. Check back regularly to learn more.

Thank you for your continued support.
