Our medical clinic outreach in Pakistan will require one male physician, one female physician, one pediatrician, and several nurses. The people in the villages we will be ministering in have no access to any kind of healthcare and most likely have never been seen by a docter in their life. The medical clinic is a vital part of our evangelistic outreach in Pakistan.
MEDICATIONS FOR CLINIC
The medication for the clinic has to be purchased in Pakistan, we are not able to being the medicine in with us this trip.
We are looking for donations to help us be able to purchase these medicines. If your family, friends, church, etc are looking for the ways they can help, this would be a great need that can be fulfilled.
