MEDICAL CAMPS - HOPE FOR THE WORLD INTERNATIONAL
In India, over 75% of the healthcare infrastructure is concentrated in metro cities, where only 27% of the total population resides—the rest 73% of the Indian population lack even basic healthcare facilities. There are still many rural villages who do not have basic medical care available. Many people who live close to medical care are unable to afford expensive healthcare treatments. A healthcare team that includes two doctors, nurses, an assistant, and a driver, along with a medically equipped bus, can travel and assist people with healthcare aid.
Of course, our services are free of cost. It is only free for the people, not for us. Hospitally equipped buses need to be maintained and salaries paid to doctors, nurses, assistants, drivers, and all the medication we give to patients.
How much does it cost?
In every medical camp we provide healthcare assistance for 250 - 280 people. There are 8 different tests we run on every individual, such as blood pressure, mammography, diabetes, blood sugar, a standard physical examination, cancer screening, and so on. Upon accessing their condition, the doctor would provide necessary medication or determine if any further treatment is necessary, and they would be referred to a medical clinic.
The cost of each medical camp is $7500.
We appreciate your prayers and support to transform lives for the glory of the Lord.
Project : Building a Medical Clinic
India has the 2nd largest population in the world with almost 1.4 billion people and providing appropriate healthcare has been a constant country-wide issue. Since the beginning of Covid-19, the majority of hospitals have increased their fees due to the high demand for doctors and hospital admissions. Currently, healthcare services are one of the largest revenue-producing industries in India. Aside from increased costs, the majority of the population is not able to pay for medical care at all.
According to government statistics, 73% of the population live in rural villages. Most of these people cannot even afford medication and usually end up dying from preventable diseases and injuries. Over the past 3 years Hope For The World International has seen hundreds of people die in local communities from Covid-19 and many are still getting sick.
Many of our friends and native missionary brothers and sisters have lost their lives due to medical emergencies that were not able to seek professional care. As HOPE has been praying we believe that the Lord has opened our hearts to see the need for a medical clinic outside of Bhadrachalam, India!
Physical & Spiritual Healing
Preaching the gospel publicly is still illegal in India. We strongly believe that a healthcare clinic is a bridge where people can receive care for their needs. And not only will we provide quality medical care, we also share the love and compassion of God, something an individual may have never experienced before. Delivering medical care for all casts of people allows us to share in their pain and it gives us an opportunity to comfort them. It is going to be a place where HOPE will witness not only physical but also spiritual healing.
Where Are We Now?
We are sincerely praying and trusting the Lord to start with a 30 bed medical clinic and slowly grow to a 100 bed hospital. We are discussing our plans with civil engineers & architectural companies for beginning construction. Be in prayer and see how God allows you to be a blessing to the people of India through our new upcoming ministry!
Currently, we are raising funds to acquire the land and the required certification and government permission!
We appreciate your prayers!!
