A significant percentage of Filipinos live in urban poor communities, and most have inadequate access to primary health care, or no basic knowledge and skills for dealing with simple health issues. By providing such care and training, you can manifest the love of Christ.
Initially there is an opportunity to work alongside a nurse and be trained in community health. Working in partnership with other BL ministries, you will have opportunities to assess and address primary health care needs in marginalized communities in and around Manila, a mega city of 20 million people. Urgently needed is someone who can also train community-based primary health workers - mostly mothers - with the aim that in all the house churches there is someone who is knowledgeble about general health and first aid principles. As you grow in knowledge of the Philippines urban poor culture and Tagalog language, you will have opportunities to expand your ministry.
