On this trip, we will be doing simple clinics (no shots or procedures) in churches or a location connected to the local church. We will be treating all comers for free, while also presenting the Gospel to those who give us permission.

Team Members Needed

  • 4 to 5 team members total
  • At least 2 doctors
  • At least 1 nurse
  • Other team members do not need to be medical professionals

Trip Description

Uganda is a landlocked country in East Africa, one of the poorest nations in the world. Our medical team will be staying in a guesthouse near the city of Kampala and working with national pastors.

A key component of each clinic is taking patient histories, which is done in partnership with bilingual nationals. After taking the histories, which are given to the doctors, the history takers then present the Gospel to those who given them permission. At the end of each day, we take time to debrief and pray for the next day’s activities.

Ministry Support Funds: $1,000/per participant

Each trip has its own "Ministry Support" account at ABWE, to which each participant contributes. The funds cover all local travel, accommodations, meals and supplies used throughout the trip. A predetermined amount of $100, to reserve placement, is submitted when assigned to a team. The balance needs to be submitted by 45 days prior to departure. These funds may be submitted by the team participant or by others on their behalf.

Airfare: Approximate cost: $2000-$2200

Participants are responsible for purchasing your own airfare. Information will be provided to each team member by the team leader to ensure that your ticket can be coordinated so the entire team arrives on the same flight or within 30 minutes of team leader. Comprehensive details to prepare for this trip will be communicated by the team leader once you are assigned to the team.

Miscellaneous Expenses: $100-$200

Each trip has varying miscellaneous expenses based on trip requirements (e.g. online training, background check, specific vaccinations per country requirements, visa, etc.). These requirements will be outlined in an email once assigned to the team.

The Need

Uganda has suffered more than 40 years of war and spiritual devastation. Many church leaders in Uganda lack theological education, resulting in a preponderance of false teaching placing health, wealth, and prosperity at the center of the gospel. Meanwhile, Islam continues to grow throughout Uganda. The healing and hope found in Jesus Christ is desperately needed.

ABWE missionaries are preparing to open this opportunity-filled mission field by combining church planting with medical outreach, youth ministry, and discipleship. Will you join us as we seek to root the next generation of Ugandan church leaders in the word of God?

The Impact

Use your medical skills on the mission field to heal people physically and spiritually. In our nearly 90 years of ministry, we have seen compassionate medical care soften hearts to hear the message of the gospel, changing lives for today and eternity. But we can't do this without you.
