Hand of Hope Volunteers

Togo | August 9-19, 2018

We are excited about our first medical and dental outreach to Togo, August 9-19, 2018! Togo is one of the smallest countries in Africa. It is bordered by Burkina Faso to the north, Benin to the east and Ghana to the west. It also has a coastline along the Gulf of Guinea to the south. We will be partnering with Seacoast Church. This will be a great opportunity to share the love of Christ where 81% of the rural population lives below the poverty line.



A medical/dental clinic in this area is rare and the needs are tremendous. On this outreach we will help many of the sick and hurting who would otherwise go without much needed treatment. We will set up a general medical/dental clinic and treat patients' needs as they present. We will also pray with every patient and give them an opportunity to receive Christ. The team will be staying in a hotel based in rural Togo.

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 to make all of your own travel arrangements and hotel accommodation after August 19 when the team checks out of the hotel.

Please pray about what your involvement is to be – contact us at medicalmissions@joycemeyer.org right away if you would like to attend this outreach and we will email you an application. Once you are an approved volunteer, you will not need to re-submit an application for additional outreaches.

If you have already been approved and would like to join the team, please call 1-800-707-7877 x3231 to make your $300 nonrefundable/nontransferable deposit to secure your spot on the team.

If you have not filled out an application and 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. Upon acceptance to the Uganda team, 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.
