Do you feel a call to missions? Are you passionate about serving others and making a difference in the world? Here is your chance to join us on a life changing trip to Sierra Leone!

We will stay and serve in the Eastern part of the country. We are holding 4 days of medical clinics in 4 different villages. We have identified these 4 villages because they are unreached with the gospel and the inhabitants are living in poverty. 

Medical care is not readily available to the people and Sierra Leone, which is located in West Africa. This nation has the 3rd highest infant mortality rate of all countries. The average life expectancy is age 56 years. Sierra Leone allows freedom of religion with 78% of the population stating Islam is their religion. Through the compassionate medical care, sharing of the gospel and prayer, we trust God that many will come to know our Savior, Jesus Christ.

MPFC along with our partner Global Hope Network International (GHNI) will be working alongside the communities and their leaders in a coaching process to help them come out of poverty. We will be addressing: health, sanitation, access to clean safe drinking water, income generation and a primary education for every girl and boy. We will also be providing care through our eyeglass clinic, handing out expandable shoes, and offering prayer and counseling to those who want it. 

The primary language is English. However there are 23 total languages spoken in Sierra Leone. We will have translators serving alongside of us.  

This trip will include a tourism outing and time to shop for couple souvenirs. 

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


Join our medical outreach and together we will make a life long impact as we serve in Sierra Leone. For more information/questions regarding this trip, please contact us: [email protected]
