2016 Organization of the Year: Kibuye Hope Hospital

“Kibuye Hospital deepens healing because its doctors also study the Great Physician.”

For the 2016 M3 Conference, we donated a portion of every registration to Kibuye Hope Hospital in Burundi, where doctors navigated navigate shortages in electricity, water, sanitation, equipment, workers, beds, and medicines, and figured out a way to supply the community in that region with healthcare.

Recently, one of the doctors at Kibuye received an outstanding award of $500,000 in the first annual Gerson L’Chaim Prize for Outstanding Christian Medical Missionary Service to help he and his colleagues continue their work at the hospital.

Because it never is in vain, the fight is His, the child is His, the life is His, the knife is His.  We kiss the scars on his hands and feet every time we start an IV because we know His words “as you have done to the least of these, you have done to me.”  – David Shirk

Health Outreach to the Middle East

pediatrician_origHealth Outreach to the Middle East (H.O.M.E.) is a Christian, interdenominational organization that exists to bring physical, psychological and spiritual healing to poor and suffering people in the Middle East in the name of Christ. M3 welcomes them back as a 2017 exhibitor and sponsor presented by Houston’s First Baptist Church.

For a multitude of reasons, from civil wars, political and economic difficulties, to resource scarcity, many impoverished people live in this part of the world and are deprived of appropriate healthcare. The mission of H.O.M.E. is to provide adequate and high-quality healthcare services to even the poorest of the poor.

What sets H.O.M.E. apart from other non-profit and faith-based organizations is the fact that its leaders are Bible-believing physicians who are themselves from the Middle East and are also well connected with other healthcare workers from that part of the world. This important characteristic is worth noting because time and again, this has helped H.O.M.E. break through the political, religious and cultural barriers that exist, and as result, make way for a more fruitful and efficient ministry. In addition, H.O.M.E. donations are unique in that 100{bd7f8e2d133bf486d98a00244c5aa53d6526e7c3721b9f96c748f20cd45af0ef} of contributions go directly to the mission field; H.O.M.E. administrative costs are covered through external funds.

Founded in 1990, H.O.M.E. was birthed by God in the hearts of Middle Eastern Christians in North America, as the answer to His calling to share the healing love of Christ with all the peoples of the Middle East, regardless of their race, color, religion, or geographical/political status.

H.O.M.E. currently supports 18 low-cost, Christian medical clinics, hospitals and medical projects throughout the Middle East in Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, and South Sudan with hopes to expand in the near future into North Africa. Come visit H.O.M.E. to see how you can be involved.
