Medical partnership in Chad gathers tools for outreach

Chad (MNN) — Medical facilities in Chad
are generally very limited. Medicines are often in short supply or unavailable.

Africa Inland Mission collaborated
with the Evangelical Church of Chad to address the physical and spiritual
needs. Dr. Ann Fursdon of AIM
coordinates and supervises the work of 37 Health Centers under the partnership.
Recently, the government provided funds to purchase a vehicle and other
necessary equipment for the hospital.

Fursdon is hoping to focus more
on teaching for the hospital and health centers, including discipleship and
high quality care provision. The
team is also working on a project to help the hospital in its HIV work, but it's
in the early stages.   

Fursdon was a General Practitioner
in Long Buckby, England before leaving for Kenya in 1988. In 2004, she moved to Chad to facilitate the
growth of the medical arm of missions for AIM.  

Pray for the administrators of the clinics to find ways to make
the ministry more sustainable. Ask God to give the staff stamina and endurance with
their heavy workload. Pray for
open doors for the Gospel.
