Renowned medical missionary, Dr. Helen Roseveare, founded what was “the Christian Medical Service” in the 1950s, which became Nebobongo Hospital. As she described in her biography, her vision was, "They will be nurse evangelists, preaching the gospel to their own people, gathered through their need for medical care and aid.”
"They will be nurse evangelists, preaching the gospel to their own people, gathered through their need for medical care and aid.” - Dr. Helen Roseveare
By the grace of God, this vision has been realized with Nebobongo Evangelical Hospital having well-trained nurses, Congolese technicians, doctors, and a surgeon. The hospital expressed a need for further equipping and training of its staff to aid in its operation and increase its capacity to provide quality care in the name of Jesus. Through our scholarship program, Nebobongo now has four professionals trained or still in school in higher education - a laboratory technician, a dentist, a radiology technician, and a hospital administrator.
We believe training is one of the most strategic ways to provide for our medical partners. Advanced training can help healthcare professionals keep up with the latest medical practices, technologies, and techniques. Medical knowledge and technology are constantly evolving, and it is essential that healthcare providers are equipped with the latest knowledge and tools to provide the best care possible. Many African countries face significant healthcare workforce shortages. Advanced training programs can help address these shortages by developing and training healthcare professionals who can provide specialized care and services
