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. Read more about Dr. Fader, his award, the hospital, and others like him here.


Connect with others. Be inspired. Find your mission.

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.




Every morning, Kevin wakes up in the deep blue of early morning. Like many other 12-year-old girls in Papoga, Uganda, she promptly starts her chores before going to school. She sweeps around the hut she shares with her sisters, gathers water from a nearby spring, and washes a stack of the previous night’s pots and pans.

The morning fog still hangs on the eucalyptus and cypress tress as Kevin bathes, puts on her sky-blue uniform, and walks to school down a dirt road. She passes through a vibrant community of early-risers: farmers in the fields, artisans in shops, and other students with books in hand. By the time the African sun warms the red clay soil schoolyard, Kevin greets her friends with a smile and heads inside the tin-roofed, red-brick schoolhouse to resume her studies. Her favorite class, she says, is English.

This is where she and her classmates encounter International Medical Outreach. In Kevin’s community, IMO’s intestinal parasite prevention and treatment program aims to improve the health of these students – through medication, health education, access to clean water and shoes, and improved sanitation.

Life in Papoga can look laborious and demanding to those of us on the outside. Indeed part of our job is to look at the state of their health in such a setting and find ways to improve it. However, beyond all else, the setting and the people within it remain shockingly beautiful.

The most effective health professionals can see beauty in even the most broken bodies. They see potential in the poverty-stricken and light in the darkness. Where they see suffering, they also see a joy that only those who have truly suffered can know.

Kevin knows joy. It’s not our job to introduce it to her. Our job is to work with students like Kevin to compound joy with health, so that the beauty that exists can last.
