GRID and NEA want to improve health in the Carpenter area in a sustainable manner. We have been implementing large health projects and hosting international health teams in support of that dream. Both organizations believe that establishing a hospital in the area may be one of the next possible steps to achieving year-round access to quality health care.
This year, our board members are studying the feasibility of building a hospital in Carpenter. To do this, we need to have accurate information about building plans and costs, and so we have applied to Engineering Ministries International Canada (eMi Canada) for assistance. eMi Canada is a non-profit Christian development organization mobilizing architects, engineers, and other design professionals who donate their skills for projects like this.
Right now, eMi Canada is recruiting professional volunteers to conduct a Carpenter site visit and develop hospital plans so that our board members can make a fully-informed, prayerful decision about launching a hospital. A full team description is available on the eMi Canada site.
