Mercyhands Health

The Healthcare Program of Water for Africa

When clean water is given to a remote community, health can now advance to bring healing and hope.

Each year a self-funded volunteer team of medical professionals give their skills, time and heart to give medical assistance and prayer to those suffering.

The need can be overwhelming but the results are incredible as we see many people loved back to life through the hands of our team.

Partnering together with the local hospital and private clinics is key to see long lasting change and sustainability.

“A distraught father brought his daughter Joyce aged 17yrs to a Mercyhands outreach clinic. She presented with obvious mental dysfunction and also had hormonal problems. Joyce was transferred to a mission hospital where she was diagnosed as having a pituitary tumour. Joyce underwent surgery successfully and made a very good recovery, both physically and mentally. Mercyhands was able to pay for and arrange all transport and treatments.”

– Carol, Senior Nurse

“Emelda was expecting twins, but things were not going smoothly and she needed a caesarean section. Mercyhands purchased and provided the equipment needed for the surgery (gloves, sutures, IV, catheter, etc). We attended surgery with her, helping to successfully resuscitate a very sick little girl and a relatively healthy boy.”

– Jeanette, Registered Midwife

“Being part of Mercyhands team in 2019 was an incredible experience. The gratitude and joy from those we helped was palpable!! From the simplest act to complex burns dressings. I was on the paediatric ward and it was very confronting to see very desperate parents standing by their dangerously ill children. We were able to help the local staff to action care for individual kids that was life saving. The biggest joy was the love, laughter and hugs shared... despite the language barrier we were able to convey God's love!!”

– Yvette, Registered Nurse
