Better Healthcare in Baptist Hospitals of the Congo
About This Mission Project
Many Congolese hospitals and health centers are dangerously underequipped. Patients, who may walk a great distance for care, come with high hopes of finding relief for their suffering. But in a country where people earn, on average, a dollar a day, there often isn’t money to pay for health center services, let alone equipment and supplies.
The addition of basic equipment is an incredibly practical way to improve health care services and manifest God’s love in the Congo.
- $25 provides small instruments for taking vital signs and caring for wounds
- $50 purchases baby scales.
- $100 buys a sterilizer.
- $500 provides a microscope.
- $1000 buys an ultrasound machine.
- $1700 purchases a high efficiency, eco-friendly autoclave.
Mission Project Specifics
This project seeks to raise $15,750 to purchase medical equipment for the Congo Baptist network of hospitals and health centers.
This project will be managed by the Congo Baptist office of medical coordination, in collaboration with International Ministries missionary Katherine Niles.
Through meeting basic equipment needs, it is anticipated that this project will improve the services offered to 100,000 patients who seek care in this network of facilities.

After delivering twins by C-section, this hospital team was able to give the new mother soft blankets, bed sheets and rolled bandage wound dressings, all gifts from White Cross. A solar powered spotlight in the operating room was a gift from a generous donor.
