The Medical Benevolence Foundation (MBF) works with local churches in developing countries and supporting partners in the U.S. to build sustainable medical ministries serving the most vulnerable and marginalized populations. Nurses play a critical role in the delivery of essential health services and in strengthening health care systems.

They are also trained and empowered to be leaders to help improve the quality of care and advocate for better clinical outcomes in their countries.
The Mark K Center for Global Nursing Development (MKCGND) is focused on the following goals:
- Building Bridges and Relationships
- Improving Quality of Nursing Education and Advancing Nursing Practice

Daily headlines of disasters and crises can overwhelm or prompt us to action. How can we respond well? Open to anyone, this program empowers participants to effectively contribute to global response efforts through knowledge and application of life-saving and dignity-upholding measures as outlined in the Sphere Handbook: Humanitarian Charter and Minimum Standards in Humanitarian Response. Developed by the international response community, the Sphere Handbook puts affected populations and the right to life with dignity at the center of humanitarian response. It focuses on quality, accountability, and collaboration. Interactive sessions contextualize universal minimum standards, key actions, and key indicators and cover four core life-saving areas: water supply, sanitation and hygiene promotion; food security and nutrition; shelter, settlement and non-food items; and health action. Program participants will gain resources to put principles into practice, engage with coordinated relief efforts, minister to affected populations, and maintain resilience.
