  • Lead Togolese team of laboratory technicians in performing routine medical analyses, using both electronic equipment and manual methods
  • Organize and supervise Togolese staff in day-to-day work performance

The Need

Togo is located in West Africa, a geographic area characterized by poor quality of life and little access to the gospel. Muslims are the fastest growing religious group in the country and nearly one-in-three Togolese practice some form of animism. The country has seen little evangelical outreach and maintains one of the highest percentages of un-evangelized local religions in all of Africa.

ABWE began working in the country in 1974 ministering in Togo through the ministries of healthcare and education. Our vibrant ministry outreaches have expanded and now include two hospitals, a school for the visually impaired, an aquaponics farm, a Christian radio station, translation ministries, community health outreach and much more. With so many ministries and so much work to do, we need you in Togo. Will you join us?

The Impact

The Hôpital Baptiste Biblique (HBB), is an ABWE hospital which serves a wide region of southern Togo as its primary hospital with full medical, surgical, and obstetrical services. Care is given as an example of the Great Physician in a compassionate and overtly evangelistic setting.

Due to the ongoing global COVID-19 crisis, ABWE is limiting international travel of short-term missionaries originating from the US and assessing the level of risk per country per US State Department guidelines. To inquire about travel restrictions or exceptions, please contact go@abwe.org. We would love to talk to you!
