COST
$2,700.00
We will fly to Ouagadougou and then travel to Bobo-Diolasso where our lodging will be for the week. Our medical outreach site is one hour from Bobo-Dioulasso.  The villagers have access to a community health worker, but no physician.  Many cannot afford the medical care. 

44% of the people in this country are living beneath the poverty line. Many children die of malnutrition. 

We are partnering with CAPRO/Calvary Ministries. They have over 700 missionaries working in 35 countries among unreached people groups.   We will support the work that the CAPRO missionaries are doing among this people group. Currently there are only 10 believers in the entire area.  

For this trip we desire: 
Physicians, dentists, medical students, nurse practitioners, nurses, pharmacists, physician assistants, optometrists, physical/occupational therapists, and non-medical helpers.

We have an eyeglass clinic, provide "The Shoe that Grows" and a counseling/prayer area on all of our medical trips. 

We hope you will join us in providing medical care, health education and displaying the love of Jesus in this West African country of Burkina Faso!
