Join us in celebrating World Health Day

GFA-supported medical ministry is helping thousands who are in need of medical attention, all while displaying the love of Christ. Medical camps, a major aspect of GFA-supported medical ministry, bring skilled doctors, medical staff, medication and health training to areas where people rarely have the chance to see a doctor. These camps may be organized in Bridge of Hope centers, remote villages, crowded slums—any place there is need and opportunity.

Receiving medicine and love

After hearing about a free medical camp organized through GFA, this mother walked three miles carrying her young boy seeking help. He has endured a lot of pain from this boil-like growth on his head, but due to a lack of financial stability, they couldn't afford to visit a doctor. But through these free medical camps and God's love, he is now receiving the treatment he needs.

Gaining more than a blanket


Icy wind + no indoor heating + tatatered clothing = Misery, sickness or even death.

You can change this equation!

The simple act of placing one or two warm blankets in the arms of a parent or grandparent can powerfully impact a family, just like this father and his kids. It also can remind them that, though they are poor and overlooked by many, others like you extend genuine love to them.

A roof over their heads

Most of the houses in the villages here are made of wooden sticks, coconut thatches or dirt tiles and dirt without any strong foundation and strong walls. It's no wonder that rainwater can easily enter the wall and roof, causing damages to most of the village homes.

But with these tin roofing sheets—a relatively inexpensive gift that many people in Asia can't afford—their homes can withstand monsoon rains and other storms year-round!

Happy World Toilet Day! Like this family, many people in Asia have been given outdoor toilets through GFA-supported sanitation projects—a huge blessing for families without a proper place to use the restroom. Using the bathroom outside can be dangerous or lead to life-threatening diseases. So not only do outdoor toilets give families clean, private places to go to the bathroom, but it can actually help save their lives too!

In the aftermath of a natural disaster, it can be so hard to return to normal everyday life. Children need to go back to school, but often their homes and possessions have been lost or damaged.

Many people love the sound of rain on a tin roof. For many familes in Asia, the simple gift of a tin sheet means they have shelter from the storm. The best South Asian homes are built using simple materials that will withstand the harsh natural elements. That's why many homes have roofs of tin sheets. The tin is lightweight and easy to install, yet durable enough to withstand the monsoon rains.
