Mukinge Medicine Project

Reference number

94643

Founded by Dr Bob Foster in the early 1950s, Mukinge mission hospital provides physical and spiritual care to patients in and around Mukinge, Zambia. Hospital chaplains share the gospel with patients and their families.

At present, Mukinge Mission Hospital is currently experiencing a drug shortage, forcing the pharmacy to ration medicines and leaving patients without proper medications. This is a major issue for a hospital that provides care to approximately 1,000 inpatients and 2,000 outpatients every month. The hospital has a limited amount of funding which is insufficient to purchase the drugs required. The drugs shortage significantly affects the quality of care that Mukinge Mission Hospital can provide to its patients.

Please pray:

  • Praise God for the drugs with which the hospital can treat patients.
  • Pray that the funds will be forthcoming to be able to effectively treat more patients.
  • Praise God for the opportunity to share the good news of Christ with patients and pray that what they hear will impact their lives for eternity.
