"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.
"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."
"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."
"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."
