  • Supplies Needed for 2022 Mali Medical Trip

    Ward Church Outreach 1 month ago

    A team is being formed now to go to Mali, West Africa from July 9-23, 2022.  The team will hold clinics in the surrounding villages of the Capital City of Bamako. In addition to providing much needed medical care, the clinics open the door for our Malian brothers and sisters to return to these villages to share the gospel long after we are gone. To date, over 60 churches have been started thanks to the hard work of our Malian brothers and sisters! Please join us in prayer for our team as we seek to demonstrate the love of Jesus to those who need Him.

    The team purchases our prescription medications in Mali, but we rely on the generosity of Ward to provide hundreds of donations of over-the-counter medical supplies. Although we will be accepting donations until mid-June, these donations need to be sorted and repacked for the journey… a very time-consuming process.

    Please consider helping us purchase the following needed supplies (NO EXPIRED ITEMS, PLEASE!). Thank you in advance for your generosity!
