HOME’s team in Minia, Egypt recently had the opportunity to visit two villages, Akaka and Koum El Ahmar, through the mobile clinic. Health services are virtually nonexistent in these areas, the closest hospital being at least 90 minutes away. Poverty is so rampant in these areas that people aren’t able to afford any kind of doctor’s visit or medication. The team of physicians saw 230 patients in 3 days with ophthalmology, internal medicine, and orthopedics being in especially high demand. We are looking forward to going back with more specialties as the people are in dire need of medical attention.
We thank the Lord for helping and protecting our team during this pandemic.
