African Christian Hospitals is the supporting / facilitating organization for seven medical mission points in Africa. We place an emphasis on training, equipping, and empowering African health practitioners and community health facilitators to be able to treat and minister to their neighbors. This, we believe, creates an opportunity for lasting change and far-reaching impact in countries that are in need of both physical and spiritual care.
