News 2015--Centura Global Health Initiatives

This is the website of one of our great friends:  Centura Global Health Initiatives.

They came back to Nepal to help the ladies of Nepal 

with much needed uterine prolapse surgeries. We're very thankful that they come two to three times per year.


If you checked out their website, you'll notice that they take medical mission trips not only to Nepal, but also go to two sister Seventh-day Adventist hospitals in



and a partner hospital in

All of their work is self-funded, and they do accept donations.  If you feel compelled to offer financial assistance, please visit their website for information.  If you are a medical professional interested in participating in a campaign, please also visit their website for information.

Would you like to know more about why these surgeries are so important and necessary?  This article from Irin Humanitarian News & Analysis is very thorough and informative:

Their time here flew by, and before we knew it, 29 women had their lives back!
