Mission Statement

Global Health Ministries (GHM) continues the healing ministry of Jesus Christ by enhancing health care programs of Lutheran Churches in other countries.

Description

GHM provides the Gift of Life by helping the hands that heal. GHM delivers its services through three programs:

  1. Shipping needed medical supplies and equipment: in 2011, GHM shipped 9 containers in support of hospitals and clinics to seven countries (Liberia, Tanzania, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Madagascar, Bulawayo and Zimbabwe) valued at over $1,500,00.
  2. Funding health care programs: In 2011, GHM funded more than $950,000 to 48 projects in twenty countries. One example is an integrated initiative in Southern Madagascar that combines efforts in primary health, sanitation and clean water, education, evangelism and small business development in one program to enhance the health of poor villages. GHM's work greatly improves the quality of life for nearly 1 million people.
  3. Recruiting personnel in support of health systems: One example is GHM's program called Global Health Administration Partners (GHAP). GHAP enhances the management of faith-based health systems by recruiting and sending volunteer health administrators on short-term mission work to mentor and teach local health administrators and governing boards.
