Who Are We?
International Health Care Foundation (IHCF) is a non-profit charitable foundation begun in 1972 as African Christian Hospitals Foundation. IHCF is directed by a Church of Christ based Board, whose members hail from all across the USA. Our offices and full-time staff are located in Searcy, Arkansas.
The need for health care services in developing nations is not diminishing. We cannot keep up with the challenges of bringing people what they want (physical help), while delivering what they need (spiritual help). Supplying both (Holistic apporach) is Medical Evangelism at work.
