VOMedical Egypt: Mobile Medical Clinics

12 January 2024

Each year we fund mobile medical clinics in Egypt. In 2023, five clinics were run in different villages in Upper Egypt and Alexandria.

The clinics have two objectives, firstly to provide medical care to persecuted Christians, especially Muslim background believers, who face discrimination and targeted violence. Secondly, they are used as an outreach to Muslims.

 

Ten Christian doctors with the following specialities volunteered their services to provide medical examinations and treatment as required, to 815 patients.

  • Dermatologist
  • Orthopaedist
  • ENT Specialist
  • Paediatrician
  • Ophthalmologist
  • Internal Medicine Physician
  • Pharmacists

 

The project organisers and team of doctors are specifically asked to join this valuable service because of their medical skills and experience but also because they have a heart to share the Good News with patients.

 

One of the new doctors to joined the team last year commented: “I’m very happy with such medical mobile clinics; you are very organised, and what I’m very happy with, is that your goal is to use this medical service as an opportunity to share the Good News with the patients. I’m happy to join you every year and whenever you organise this ministry, please invite me.”

Another first-time doctor commented: “I thank God that despite my old age, God uses me by providing medical service with the aim of providing spiritual service and showing His love to people.”
One of the organisers said, “This project is truly adding a great value to my life as these clinics are fulfilling God’s vision to me, which He had given to me many years ago, to show His love to people and help them know Him and touch His love through such a ministry.”

The doctors pray with the patients and for those interested in knowing more, are asked to provide their contact details. The details are then given to a VOM front-line worker to follow up.
The mobile clinics are a valuable tool to provide much-needed medical care and a powerful witness to the love of Jesus Christ. This project will be repeated in 2024.
