Welcome to Chicuque Rural Hospital

of staff and patients at Chicuque.

A newborn fighting for her life. A burn victim. A caring nurse. A young man learning to walk for the first time. These are a few of the many faces of Chicuque Rural Hospital.

Founded by a Methodist missionary in 1913, today the hospital provides healthcare to approximately 500,000 men, women and children in Mozambique, southeast Africa.

From AIDS outreach programs and tuberculosis vaccinations to emergency surgery and physical therapy, the hospital's doctors, technicians and nurses struggle daily to meet the dire needs of their patients. Supplies that are considered fundamental in American healthcare - gauze and gloves or formula for newborns - are not guaranteed to the patients of Chicuque. Despite the hardships, Chicuque Rural Hospital has one of the best reputations in the country.

Please join us in our effort to continue to care for our brothers and sisters in Mozambique.
