Jewish Philanthropist Helps Christian Doctors Save Lives in Africa
Elevate Christian Network :: News and Events
Medical Missions in Africa: A wealthy Jewish philanthropist and Christian doctors work to help some of Burundi’s most vulnerable. Roughly the size of Maryland, Burundi is one of the continent’s smallest countries. It used to be the third-poorest in the world. Now it’s number one.
In 2013, American Jason Fader moved his wife, Heather, and their two kids to Burundi to serve as a missionary doctor in a remote part of the country. Fader is the assistant medical director at Kibuye Hope Hospital. Some 70 percent of the nation lives below the poverty line.
According to Dr. Fader,”It would be difficult to find a place in the U.S. where I could have even a smidgen of the impact that one surgeon can have here in the middle of Africa. There are 2 million people in this area that have no surgeon and I’m happy to be here to care for them.”
For several years, Mark Gerson and his wife, Erica, have given millions of dollars to support missionary doctors across Africa. These Jewish philanthropists are helping missionary doctors save countless lives across Africa. Read the full story…. www1.cbn.com
