ABC Health Foundation

The ABC Health Foundation uses medical care to meet both physical and spiritual needs in Albania. Established in 1994, the ABC practices and teaches excellence in health care, while imparting a biblical worldview. Christar workers and Albanian medical staff serving through the ABC desire to see Christ-honoring transformation happen in communities across Albania as they live out God’s love through their practice.

God is using these medical programs not only to equip health care workers, but to also bring about spiritual fruit! For example, when an ABC community health nurse and an intern visited a patient with cancer, they noticed the many religious symbols hanging on the walls of his home. As they cared for his wounds, they were able to share with him and his daughter that salvation is found only in Christ, not in the rituals and rules. Before they left, the daughter declared that she wanted a relationship with Jesus.

The ministries of ABC Health Foundation include:

Primary Health Care:

  • Medical care for the entire family at the ABC Family Health Center, a model family medicine health care center
  • Lab services
  • Physiotherapy
  • Speech therapy
  • Palliative care (end of life) services

Medical Education:

  • Internships in family practice, nursing and physical therapy with a focus on the basics of primary care and ethical/moral values in medicine
  • Training for professionals and students in medical, nursing and physical therapy topics

Community Health:

  • Home visits by community health nurses
  • Health screenings in the community (often in cooperation with local churches)
  • Health education programs in areas such as CPR, first aid and healthy eating

Participate by Praying for the ABC Health Foundation:

  • Ask God to continue to open doors for ABC to bring eternal hope to many in Albania as they provide medical education and care.
  • Praise God for many Albanians who have heard biblical truths through ABC’s community health education and patient care services.
  • Lift up ABC’s new palliative care initiative. Ask God to touch many lives as nurses and doctors care for patients and their families in this difficult time of life.
  • Pray that ABC will effectively equip medical, nursing and physical therapy students to provide compassionate, whole-person care.
  • Pray that these students will be drawn to Christ, and that those who already believe will be equipped to share their faith through their profession.
