North Africa is one of the most challenging regions to serve, yet it is also one of the neediest populations in the world. If God has enriched you with the gifts of courage, discretion and wisdom — and you can offer practical skills such as medical care — there is a place for you with ABWE in North Africa.
As a medical care provider in North Africa, you will:
- Have experience providing primary healthcare or palliative healthcare, including relevant training and/or certification, that will allow you entrance into the country
- Always have a place to serve. The physical needs are great and any experience can be used – doctors, nurses, nursing assistants, laboratory technicians, rehabilitation therapists, nutritionists, experience with developmental delays, etc.
- Provide physical, emotional, social and spiritual support to patients in the community and their family members
- Provide the best healthcare possible when resources are scarce and the population served is poor or otherwise overlooked
- Learn the local language while building relationships that will allow you to share Christ, with the goal of supporting a self-sustaining and indigenous church that does not yet exist
- Be a committed Christian who brings a love for people and a passion for challenge to work every day
As part of the 10/40 Window, North Africa bears some of the world’s greatest physical and spiritual needs. Most here have never had an opportunity to hear the gospel, and many have lived in poverty and broken relationships. Countries in this area of the world desperately need Christians to come and live life among them to demonstrate the greatness and love of our God.
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.
