General Information

Ghana Children 2014Heartbeat for Africa works with churches and individuals to help those with a heart for Africa to connect with in-country mission efforts in West Africa.  Heartbeat for Africa is active in supporting Community Health Evangelism (CHE) training and medical outreach in West Africa.  We work closely with the local African CHE Country coordinators to assist them in their mission and training outreach.

We routinely send small mission teams to West Africa (8-12 people) to come alongside the in-country missionaries.  We are there to support them and assist them.  We typically send either a Medical  Mission Team or a Short Term Education Team.

The Medical Mission Team is usually led by one of our Doctors and will focus on medical assessments in the villages or medical clinics or  disease prevention and hygiene.  The teams are usually made up of both medical professionals and non-medical individuals with a desire to contribute.

Short Term Education team will normally travel to West Africa and support CHE training
seminars to local CHE trainers in one or more country in West Africa. The Education team
members are given approximately 15 hours of CHE training prior to the trip. The training is to
become familiar with the CHE educational lessons that the HBA partners have asked us to
facilitate. Team members may be asked to facilitate lessons in the areas of health, hygiene,
disease prevention, woman’s health, water purification, children’s bible story telling and many
more. Heartbeat for Africa works with our African partners to assist them in focusing on the
physical, social and spiritual needs of the community.

It may simply be that God has laid a burden on your heart for the people of West Africa.  It may be that your purpose is simply to share the love of Christ and your personal testimony with a child living day to day.  Sometimes a smile is worth more than gold.
