The Calvary Torch Team
The Calvary Torch Missions Team is comprised of dedicated professionals in both healthcare systems and other professional non healthcare industries. The team members are passionate about Jesus and extremely motivated to aid countries with less developed healthcare systems especially in Africa.
The team travels to these countries and locates the most healthcare disadvantaged areas in the hinterlands to aid. This aid comes as setting up a local healthscreening clinic where the patients are screened for various ailments and are presecribed medications which are then distributed to them for free. The team also educates the patients and the local healthcare practioners on proper health and dental care.
The Team always welcomes anyone who wants to be a part of this great mission and please click on the link below if you want to join the team and we will send you an information packet on how to do that.
