Kibuye Hope - John Cropsey
LPC's Mission Partners include John and Jessica Cropsey and the Kibuye Hope medical team in Burundi, East Africa. Dr. John is a missionary ophthalmologist and leader of the team in Burundi. Here is a brief look at the place and the people served by the team.
Members of the team regularly post to their blog, which covers a wide range of topics reflecting the experiences of the doctors, spouses and families living at Kibuye Hope. All the posts are written from a Christian perspective, some are challenging, some are heartbreaking, some are funny, all of them provide a window into this mission even from thousands of miles away.
LPC supports Dr. Cropsey and Kibuye Hope through the mission budget, special gifts filling specific needs such as medical equipment, and in-kind help such as the teacher boxes full of school supplies sent to the nearby government school. Read more about the teacher boxes.
The team's vision since the beginning describes a project LPC is privileged to support:
Our 30-year strategic plan envisions this place becoming a national center of medical care and education, expanding to over 300 beds, including surgical, intensive care, emergency, opthalmology, community health, and NICU services.
