This is a warehouse position so please wear sturdy close toe shoes. Also it might get a little dusty in some parts of the warehouse.
Volunteer in Minnesota and touch people across the globe! Volunteers will prepare and load boxes of medical supplies to be shipped to third world countries.

What is Global Health Ministries?
We are an instrument through which your love and compassion are channeled for the health and hope of God's children around the world!
A response to the Good News of Jesus, the "Great Physician"
Sharing our abundant resources to impact the lives of disadvantaged children and adults in other parts of the world
Direct involvement by individuals and congregations in Christ's healing ministry
"Helping the Hands that Heal"
"Global Health Ministries continues the healing ministry of Jesus Christ by enhancing health care programs of Lutheran churches in other countries."
We do this by:

Gathering and shipping useful donated health care equipment and supplies as requested by Lutheran health care programs;
Communicating to groups and congregations the opportunities and needs of the church's overseas health care programs;
Praying for the church's health care missionaries and those they serve;
Recruiting nurses, dentists, doctors, surgeons, and allied workers for overseas service in training and consultation missions;
Advising synods and other groups on health care mission issues out of the rich reservoir of knowledge and experience of GHM supporters.
Your financial contributions help cover the cost of:
Facilities for patient care
Mosquito netting to protect a family from malaria
Monthly subsidy for a remote clinic

Training cost for nurses, technicians and other health care personnel
