In Guinea, a nation in West Africa, the average life expectancy is under 50 years. Major infectious diseases (hepatitis A, typhoid, malaria, yellow fever and tuberculosis) combine with parasitic diseases, dehydration and HIV/AIDS to rob millions of longer life.
YOU CAN HELP!
I’m excited to be part of CureAfrica.org, and I’d like you to spread the word. CureAfrica.org supports two medical teams in one of the poorest nations on earth For every book you buy, our authors donate $5.00, divided equally between these teams:
Hope Clinic is a dental & medical clinic in Guinea, West Africa. The clinic lives out God’s love to the people of Guinea by meeting their medical and dental needs while giving a verbal witness of the Gospel. They work in conjunction with Guinea Medical Teams, providing care to the Mano and Malinke tribal groups of Guinea through short-term outreaches since 1993.

a.. Patient visit ($4.00)

“Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: ‘for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; ‘I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.'” Matthew 25:34-36, NKJV.
