As healthcare providers, we try to understand and respect people where they are in their lives. We are immersed in their cultures and languages to provide communities with access to healthcare that makes sense for them. This definition of healthcare is comprehensive. It can mean establishing clinics for care with continued follow up provided by local healthcare workers, who are in a better position to administer care long term.
Our vision includes providing preventive and maintenance care to local communities and our children's home. We provide prenatal care, grief resources, medical evaluations, medications, transportation for care, telemedicine visits when we cannot be there in person, and training communities to take care of those in need.
“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’” Matthew 25:35–40 (ESV)
