Face of Joy International liaises with hospitals, churches, schools, orphanages and mental health institutions to facilitate the global outreach mission trips that it undertakes.
Most communities in African nations depend on the church for their supply. The church is always the first port of call for the disadvantaged. The church can provide up to date information for locating those who are in need.
Our mission trips normally take between 10 to 14 days. We are hosted by a local church during that time. We also spend a day with the government house listening to the plight of the local community and seeing what actions we can take to provide supply for their needs. . Also, anyone who desires to be part of the mission field is welcomed to join us during our trip because there would be open air crusades and evangelism outreaches in towns and villages where there would be opportunity to lay hands on the sick, the blind and all manner of ailments and they would receive their healing. New converts would be directed to the local church available for follow-up and support.
We always hold medical camp during our outreach which involves taking blood pressure reading, conducting diabetes test, administering oral dental care and health promotion teaching for medical staff within the areas we visit. We tend to liaise with the local hospitals and, where possible, help in stocking up their medical supplies. We encourage doctors, nurses, dermatologists and healthcare assistants to join us in volunteering during our medical outreach days.
We also visit widows, orphanages and schools and provide them with money, school items and clothes. In some orphanages, we help in the cooking of the food and serve the children.
Mental institutions are places we visit and provide information and training for their staff and personnel.
