Guinea Bissau Clinic

The Church of the Nazarene in Guinea Bissau is stepping into the gap of available health services with a mobile health clinic.

In the West African country of Guinea Bissau, the medical situation is precarious. The capital city, named Bissau, with a population of nearly 500,000 people, has only one national hospital.

In 2023, Ezequiel and Susy Ramirez, Nazarene missionaries to Guinea Bissau, decided to revive a mobile clinic ministry that had been in existence. After a God-ordained meeting of Korean doctors with another organization, Jonathan and Cecelia, the Ramirez family asked them to help with the Church of the Nazarene’s mobile clinic.

Each weekend, the mobile clinic provides free medical services in the Antula neighbourhood of the city. While individuals are receiving free medical attention, they are also hearing the gospel message, and many people choose to stay to attend church services.

Most weekends the clinic serves as many as 50 people in a single day.

The Africa Region requests continued prayer for missionaries in Guinea Bissau as they work to meet the physical and spiritual needs of their neighbors.

The Cameroon flag is a vertical tricolor of green, red and yellow, defaced with a five-pointed star in its center. The center stripe is thought to stand for unity: red is the colour of unity, and the star is referred to as "the star of unity." The yellow stands for the sun and also the savannas in the northern part of the country, while the green is for the forests in the southern part of Cameroon.
