Helping with Medical & Practical Needs
One inescapable reality of most developing nations is that there is a severe shortage of adequate healthcare and practical resources for them to live well.Many villagers in these places suffer needlessly because of little to no access to doctors, nurses or any kind of simple over the counter medicinal aids. As a result, conditions that are easily treatable remain unchecked adding further pain and suffering to lives that are already filled with overwhelming hardship and despair. Given this, we have made it a priority whenever we go to help meet some of their basic medical care needs as well as offer some practical opportunities to help improve their quality life.
Jesus went through all of the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. – Matt. 9:35-36
For I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me. – Matt. 25:35-36
Uganda Medical Outreach
We are embarking on our 3rd medical outreach in June 2021. We will be working with New Hope Uganda’s medical clinics at Kasanaa and Musana to build on last summer’s success where we provided medical and dental care to over 1300 Ugandans in a remote school, prison and numerous villages.
What we hope to do!
While there, this team will treat and test for malaria, typhoid, bilharzia, brucellosis, urinary tract infections and STD’s as well as chronic diseases like diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, skin diseases, fungal infections, respiratory infections, and pneumonia. We will also be providing wound care for the commonly seen work related accidents. We also hope to offer some dental care as well.
Why this matters!
Sadly, many of the villagers have been socially conditioned to turn to their local witch doctors and remedies for help. This often results in the clinics not seeing these patients until their situation has become quite dire. This outreach will provide us with a wonderful opportunity to minister to them with the love and healing power of Jesus using a modern medicine approach.
This year we have set a goal of raising $20,000 to purchase much needed medicine, supplies and Bibles for the two clinics and our summer outreach.
Help us reach our goal to minister to the physical and spiritual needs of thousands of Ugandans by donating to “Uganda Medical Supplies” today!
Medical & Personal Hygiene Items Needed
Common over the counter medical and personal hygiene items are in very short supply in the countries we go to each year. As a result, conditions that could be easily treated remain unchecked causing needless pain and suffering to both young and old.
Given that, we have made it a priority to collect some very practical medical and personal hygiene items to take with us on our mission trips.

The Luke Commission – Eswatini
Eswatini has the highest HIV rate in the world with one in two people infected with HIV and the average life expectancy of 49 years of age. At the current rate of transmission it is predicted that an entire generation could disappear in the next 5 – 7 years!
Studies show that the HIV transmission rate can be cut by 60% when males are circumcised. The Luke Commission is restoring the generations by providing that kind of care through their mobile units that provide compassionate, comprehensive healthcare to the most isolated and underserved populations of southern Africa.
