About MCWA

MCWA was founded in 1989 to be a beacon of hope and peace in Cameroon. A hospital was built which opened in 1994, where patients from near and far received compassionate, competent medical care. Today the hospital is run completely by Cameroonian staff, treats 43,000 patients annually, and employs 130 Cameroonians. To God be the glory!

If you are interested in knowing more about the work or if you would like information about serving with MCWA, you may contact them at the home office.
