Team Member Honored

Judy McQuown was a member of our 2012 team. She was our OB nurse and we kept her busy. She did a terrific job with the complicated deliveries we handled.

Judy has been honored as one of the top 100 nurses in the state of Iowa. We know she is great, but it is wonderful for her to receive the public honor.

Time for an update

We have been too neglectful of web presence. We have been very busy working on the next chapter of support for Nhaloi Medical Center. Here are some highlights:

  • We have incorporated "Hope and Healing Africa" and are applying for 501(c)3 status with the IRS. This will give us an avenue to seek corporate funding and grants. 
  • Dr. Claassen & his family will be traveling to Mozambique in June to network with Ministry of Health and make more plans to take up residence ay Nhaloi. Hendrik Smidderks will be traveling with the Claassens for support and communication. Rolf Hagemann and 3D Outreach will again be a partner in this endeavor. More on this soon.
  • The water situation at Nhaloi remains critical. We have raised a fraction of the funds needed to repair the old well or drill a new well.
  • A women's group from a church in western Kansas is our first Nurse Sponsor. They are providing salary support for one of the nurses at Nhaloi. It only costs $30 a month!
We are seeking more financial support. If you are interested in sponsoring a nurse, helping with the water situation, or are willing to provide support for Dr. Claassen's return, please contact Hendrik at
