Project Information

Providing transportation support for United Methodist medical, evangelical, and relief outreach

Annual Goal: $65,000.00

Year to Date Gifts: $9,815.00

Describe the need affecting community
Democratic Republic of Congo, 3 times the size of Texas, has less than 1000 miles of paved road so transportation is a very serious problem. Transportation for church leadership, medical teams, college professors, and medical emergencies is only possible through the mission plane in a timely manner. Medical centers that can handle medical emergencies are not available within walk making the aviation program a necessity and life-saving.
How will this Advance project help to address the need?

Wings of Caring seeks to provide timely response to emergencies and to ongoing transportation needs for the church, medical and educational staff so they can respond to the needs in the community and reflect our Lord's care and compassion for all.

Describe the primary goal of the project

To provide transportation for the Bishop and other church leaders to places where they cannot easily reach; to transport sick people to hospitals where they can receive medical attention; to facilitate the transportation of seminary and college professors to the UMC institutions of higher education; to transport mail from one mission station to another. These are all urgent to help address education, evangelism, and medical priorities until such time that an infrastructure has significantly improved. Even with improvement, remote areas will still need aviation assistance especially responding to medical emergencies.

Describe the change you would like to see in the community as a result of this Advance project.

Every community is impacted by the leadership that is provided transportation by Wings of Caring. Teachers, pastors, Bishops, medical staff, and persons who are ill all impact their communities through their teaching, preaching, Evangelism, medical care, and acts of mercy and compassion. Lives are saved through medical transport.
