Medical Ministries

Common ailments often go undetected in many developing countries and quickly become a matter of life or death. People who suffer major health issues such as heart defects or AIDS face the real threat of never receiving life-giving treatment. Samaritan’s Purse provides doctors, nurses, medical equipment, and other aid while administering hope through the healing power of the Great Physician.

But now it looked like maybe that wouldn’t happen anymore. The little girl was sick. Her father had to get her to the hospital, a few miles away from their ger on the top of a hill, without a vehicle. He bundled both of them as tightly as possible in warm coats and carried Nomin out into the frigid Mongolian day. Tumurhkuu had to take his 4-year-old daughter down a long dirt road on the side of a mountain and through the city to reach the hospital. There was no other option. Click here to read the rest of Nomin's journey and how she became the 1,000 child to receive life-saving heart surgery through the Children's Heart Project. http://www.samaritanspurse.org/article/healing-for-1000-hearts/#donateBottom
