Grace Community Health Center
In the midst of the war in Iraq in 2003 a member of HOME and Grace Brethren Church in Columbus, Ohio, visited Iraq. They were overjoyed to see the spiritual growth of the people and invited four pastors to visit a newly-founded church which had opened only two months after the war began.
Once there they saw the great need for medical care and contacted HOME members. Shortly afterwards, Grace Community Health Center was established.
Recently, a two-story building in Baghdad was leased. Eventually, the clinic will be housed on the ground floor and a Community Center on the top floor.
Two Iraqi physicians, an internist and a dentist came to know the Lord through one of the outreaches held by the church, after which they indicated their desire to become a part of this newly unfolding ministry.
As this ministry is still in its initial stages much help is needed including additional staff, equipment and finances.
