Ghana Initiative Mobile Medical Mission is a non-profit organization that provides FREE medical care and treatment for children and families in Ghana, West Africa. Ghana Initiative MMM is reaching the poor and needy in villages across Ghana by way of a mobile medical clinic. This mobile clinic is managed and operated by a medical team staffed with doctors and nurses from the USA and Ghana. We also have team members who work with children in the villages. They teach them using the Bible and fun and exciting arts and crafts. The goal of our mission work is to reach tens of thousands of people in need of physical healing and spiritual salvation. The ministry of Ghana Initiative MMM is supported by donations and prayers from people just like you!
Mission and Overview
Ghana Initiative Mobile Medical Mission is focused on seeing targeted communities in Ghana, West Africa transformed with the love and power of the kingdom of God through ministries of compassion and grace. We want to see missionaries trained to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ and watch as NEW churches emerge full of passionate followers of Jesus.
Our mission is to provide medical expertise in towns and villages where medical services are lacking, to those with the greatest need.
Our educational teams provide opportunities for the children and youth in the communities where we serve. We focus on sharing the love of Jesus with every child and sharing the gift of salvation with those who have never accepted Jesus as their Savior!
By providing medical care and Bible training we are building a physically and spiritually healthier community wherever God sends us. We are also building lasting relationships with the people we serve.
By serving the people of Ghana in practical ways we hope to bring life to each community and provide resources that may lift individuals and families out of poverty and despair.
Our job is to plant seeds of life and watch as God makes them grow!
Ghana is located on Africa's west coast nestled between Togo to the east, Ivory Coast to the west and Burkina Faso to the north. It has one of the most thriving democracies on the continent of Africa. It is often referred to as an "island of peace" in a chaotic region of the world.
Ministry Spheres of Influence
A medical mission team will be deployed several times throughout the year to Ghana. While in Ghana the teams will serve targeted communities where the greatest need exists. Teams will revisit the same communities periodically to allow for consistent care, follow-up treatments and to develop and build relationships with the people in the targeted communities. The first community served by the Ghana Initiative was the hometown of Seth's father, Pokrom Nsabaa, located 30 miles northwest of the capital city of Accra.
Education Ghana Initiative provides educational opportunities for children in poverty who display a keen interest in learning and bettering themselves through education. All of the recipients of Ghana Initiative Mobile Medical Mission sponsorship must meet high academic requirements and make a commitment to attend school on a regular basis. Children are selected for scholarships according to their financial need, their willingness to achieve high scores on their exams and their joy for learning. We want to see children and their families thrive and recognize that education is one of the most important keys to achieving this. Ghana Initiative MMM also provides yearly Bible School training for children in the towns and villages where we set up our medical clinic. Bible School lasts for one week and is fun, interesting and provides a means by which we can spread the Good News of Jesus Christ to the young people of Ghana. Our long term goal is to open a missionary training center in Pokrom Nsaaba, Ghana. This will be a place where men and women in Christ will go to learn about missions and develop a ministry, through which they will be able to spread the Word of God to their own people and to the nations.
By serving the people of Ghana in practical ways we can gain their trust and discover leaders in the community. We will be looking for a core group of local leaders numbering 3 to 8 to disciple and train so they might spread the good news of Jesus Christ to others in their community. As these local leaders mature, they will disciple others using the Word of God as their foundation and eventually give birth to a new and thriving church in their community. Our job is to plant seeds of life in each community we serve and watch as God makes them grow.
