Hand of Hope Volunteers

South Africa | July 5-15, 2018

We are excited to be returning to South Africa for a medical and dental outreach July 5-15, 2018. We will be working with our Joyce Meyer Ministries South Africa office, as well as our partners RUCC Ministries. RUCC Ministries reach out to rural communities in South Africa to help alleviate human suffering through medical care, feeding programs, water relief, and community outreach.



We will set up a general medical/dental clinic and treat the patients’ needs as they present.  We will also pray with all of our patients and give them an opportunity to receive Christ.  The team will be staying in a hotel based in the Easter Cape area of South Africal. This will be our 6th outreach to the amazing country of South Africa.

More Information

If you have not filled out an application, please see below for the process.

If you have already been approved in the past for an outreach, your first step will be to submit an application to us before you put down a $300.00 non-refundable deposit.

The $300.00 non-refundable deposit is needed in order to secure your place on the team once your application has been approved. The deposit is placed toward your total trip cost. After submitting your deposit, we will provide you with the information to book your airline ticket. Hand of Hope will pre-select the team flight and we work closely with a travel agent who will coordinate the team’s itineraries. It is required to book your team travel through the travel agent we provide.

If you would like to stay longer than the scheduled outreach dates for your own leisure you are welcome to make those travel arrangements with the travel agent at the time of booking. You will be responsible for all of your own travel arrangements and hotel accommodations after July 14 when the team checks out of the hotel.
