But this is beginning to change. The Jinishian Memorial Program, an outreach of World Mission, began sending free mobile medical clinics to one village at a time, reaching nearly 600 women in its first year. Most had gynecological disorders. Many obtained vital surgeries and began cancer treatment plans. Women desperate for medical intervention finally had an advocate with the expertise to shepherd them through Armenia’s complex health care system. The program was funded solely through Jinishian donors.
New plans for a telemedicine center in Vardenis will make an even greater impact. Supported by a local family physician, patients will have access to specialists through teleconferencing. Jinishian is also making ultrasound clinics widely available and training specialists to focus on infant disability prevention. Through economic development programs, several communities are implementing grants from Jinishian to construct pipelines to provide clean water.
Because our God is a redeeming God, even genocide is not the end. Jinishian’s mission throughout the Middle East is to bring dignity and hope where there are poverty and despair through relief, development and spiritual uplift. You can join Jinishian’s work by giving, or visit Armenia in person on a mission encounter tour October 6-16, 2017.
