There is more to charity work than pure numbers. And there are people who are living today who without our work would not be alive; there are surgeons practicing across Africa with the skills gained through our program; and families who’ve been given a second chance due to the support offered through our rehab and wheelchair services. Ultimately every one of these numbers is one of those stories. Stories of transformed lives.

BethanyKids is a compassionate Christian mission transforming the lives of African children with surgical conditions and disabilities through pediatric surgery, rehabilitation, public education, spiritual ministry, and training health professionals. Our work transforms lives.

“It’s easy to lose hope when you are so oppressed.”

“It’s not just about your physical well-being. It’s holistic and about wholeness—spiritually and emotionally.”

“What’s the point in helping somebody in a wheelchair if their eternity is lost?”

“We want these families to know that God sees them, there is help, and there is a way to hope.” 

“It’s not your fault. It’s because we live in a fallen sinful world. God sends help and we are here to help you. We love you and want to bring you out of it.”

“It’s life or death for an entire community for generations to come.”

“Not everyone can give monetarily, but everyone can pray. That is the currency of heaven.”

“When you see a need, immediately go to the Father and ask what you should do. When you see a need, meet it.”
