WOA Affiliated Medical Fellowship Sends 'Corona Hope Kits' to Bolivia

Saint Luke Society (SLS), an evangelical medical ministry affiliated with the World Olivet Assembly, recently sent 'Corona Hope Kits' to Bolivia to respond to the lack of facial masks and hygienic items among less affluent people in the country. SLS Korea and SLS Latin America coordinated the project where volunteers put together kits for children containing items such as facial masks, mask straps and toothbrushes.

The masks were hand-made with colorful fabric, lovingly and creatively prepared by the volunteers. The kits were shipped earlier this month and will soon arrive and be distributed by the local SLS chapter in less privileged communities in Bolivia.

"While it may feel like a drop of water on a hot stone in the midst of the ongoing pandemic that has affected so many families, we wish to sow hope and comfort in bigger and smaller ways," an SLS leader shared. "While we currently cannot conduct our regular medical missions due to the travel restrictions still in place in different parts of the world, these simple Corona Hope Kits are meant as an expression of love and care to those in need, which go together with our prayers that the global pandemic will come to an end one day sooner."

SLS is made up of professional doctors from around the world. Its commission is to train and raise medical professionals by equipping them with the truth and love of Jesus Christ. SLS fulfills its commission by following the example of the very work of Jesus, which consists of teaching, preaching, and healing as described in the Gospel of Matthew.
