Tamuning, Guam- The Seventh-day Adventist Guam Clinic has linked up with a group of Adventist medical personnel from the mainland to assist in providing medical services to the victims of Typhoon Haiyan. In addition, the Clinic has also raised $20,000 to help support this mission.

A team of 11, comprised of doctors and support staff, left on Sunday morning, November 24, and will spend this week, to include Thanksgiving in the province of Tacloban and Samar where thousands of victims have been evacuated. The team will provide much-needed medical care to those who are fighting infections and diseases. They hope to not only help with physical healing, but provide spiritual healing as well.

“Our neighboring brothers and sisters in the Philippines need all the help they can get right now,” says Mr. Ted Lewis, Chief Executive Officer and President of the Guam Seventh-day Adventist Clinic. “There is no electricity, water, shelter, and food where they are at right now. Our SDA medical team are staying in tents and traveling by foot to different locations in the Philippines to provide medical services and medicine to our brothers and sisters in need. ” 

The Guam SDA Clinic would like to thank Oka Pharmacy and M.D. Wholesale for their generous donation of medical supplies and pharmaceuticals. We would also like to thank the Consul General of the Philippine, St. Luke’s Medical Hospital, and the Adventists Medical Evangelism Network for assisting our team with this mission trip.
