What Others Are Saying

We're Not The Only Ones Who Think These Doctors Are a Big Deal

“If evangelical Christians want to engage in activism ... they can support lifesaving organizations like ... African Mission Healthcare Foundation.”

- Nicholas Kristof, New York Times 

"I will be putting my money where my mouth is and donating through CBN to support this sacred partnership to save lives – in addition to the Jewish causes that I already support. It is a testament to religious pluralism and Jewish values at their best.

- Rabbi Joshua Stanton, Huffington Post

"Their efforts will enable the treatment of people in Africa who would otherwise be without and the training of African medical providers in eight countries — at remarkable mission hospitals curated by the African Mission Healthcare Foundation."

- Kelvin Beachum Jr., NFL New York Jets

"These [are] men and women who moved to Africa when they could otherwise be making good salaries in Europe or America, to serve the poor — often in environments without reliable electricity, running water, or anything resembling modern medical supplies. They [are] indispensable — a medical missionary might be the only physician for a population of 40 or 50,000."

- Rabbi Levi Welton, New York Jewish Life 

 "The CBN – Gerson partnership will enable eight medical missionaries and their teaching hospitals to utilize the funds to build infrastructure, treat patients, and train the next generation of qualified African healthcare providers. [Dr.] Hansen says [some of] the funds will go towards training two pediatric surgeons at Kijabe hospital, making possible at least 20,000 surgeries."
