Health Education & Illness Prevention

Getting to many of the rural villages in Indonesia requires driving off road, across rivers, and up steep mountain passes. In places where health care is needed but unavailable, teams of volunteer nurses and medical professionals run free clinics to provide check-ups and educational presentations on a range of topics from heart health to women’s health. Educational workshops and sessions have a huge impact on people’s physical health, but the gospel-based approach to health shows people that God cares about their bodies as well as their souls.

Forever God's Flowers: A Period Piece

Talking about female health and menstruation is still a taboo topic in many places around the world. In rural Indonesia and beyond we're working with local communities to make Christ-centered conversations about women's health possible.

“I enjoyed getting to do this because you can see that the women enjoy it—they enjoy learning about themselves and their health.”

How it works

Partner with churches

Through our partnerships with local churches we are able to understand the unique health challenges facing each community. We work together to discover the root cause of the issues so that practical and effective solutions can be implemented. Each solution works within the local culture instead of working against it, ensuring higher adoption rates of new health practices. 

 

Partner with health professionals

Local and visiting health professionals alike travel long hours to reach the rural villages that benefit from the educational workshops and sessions they run in their free time. By working with local and visiting volunteer health professionals we provide Jesus-centered health education and free clinics so that people can see that God has healing for both their physical and spiritual lives. 

Our work with women's health

In rural Indonesia there is little to no open conversation about female health, menstruation, or reproductive education. This has led to rural Indonesia having maternal and infant mortality rates that are nearly six times higher than other countries surrounding it. For the first time, women in rural Indonesia are being given the chance to invest in themselves and grow in their relationship with Christ as His daughters. READ MORE
