Medical Missions to Africa

Wings of Healing started medical missions in Ethiopia 2011. We conducted 2 medical campaigns every year till 2015. Since then we carried more frequent campaigns. Up to July 2021, WOH carried out over 40 medical missions and performed over 2600 surgical procedures for pelvic organ prolapse and over 100 procedures for different types of gynaecological cancer. We focus on providing care in the rural areas where expertise and facilities are limited. WOH provides all the surgical material required and provided assistance for patients’ travel. During many campaigns, patients received as well food and clothes. We are currently focusing on training local doctors and nurses in Ethiopia to deliver the service in many parts of the country. We have provided cervical screening to over 10,000 women in Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charities and many local hospitals and Health Centres. This has prevented at least 3,000 cases of cervical cancer. Read more

Supporting the Internally Displaced Peoples (IDPs) camps

Unicef estimates that over one million have been displaced during the war in Tigray. WOH set 2 clinics in Axum in the north of Tigray. They are placed in schools and they care for almost 50,000 people. We set 2 other clinics in Adwa. They provide care for over 123,000 people. These clinics will be needed for a long time. Currently more than 80% of the Heath Facilities in Tigray have been either looted or destroyed. We are hoping to provide an emergency package, for every displaced person, containing emergency hygiene stuff and some dry food. We will start in one of the IDPs. Read more

Humanitarian Work

We sponsor 50 children through a local charity; Mary Joy, the vast majority of them having lost one or two parents. We provide weekly food packages, medical care, medical equipment and medicine for a Homeless Shelter in Addis Ababa. This shelter cares for 5000 homeless people, the majority of whom are disabled.

Water for Health

WOH in conjunction with the Water and Sewage Authority of Terche in South Ethiopia, repaired and installed a new clean spring water facilities in Sado Village in Terche town. WOH intends to continue providing more clean water in other places. The lack of clean water is responsible for many diseases, some of the more obvious ones are eye infections and blindness and frequent outbreaks of Cholera.

How is your money spent

Help for cause

Wings of Healing are currently supporting a number of Charities in Egypt. One of them is focusing on education and health for the underprivileged children and the other is focusing on providing financial support for the Sudanese refugees in obtaining health treatment. The main focus of the Charity is to provide health screening and treatment for many gynaecological conditions in Ethiopia. The team carried out 3 missions in 2016 and there are plans to increase the number of missions to four a year. Some of them may last for 3 weeks. Screening for cervical cancer is our main focus. The Charity will provide facilities and training to many local gynaecologists for screening and treatment for cervical abnormalities.
