Unto: Women's Health Summer Mission

Women around the world face many physical, social, and spiritual challenges. In some cases, women are told little about their health, even to the point of becoming pregnant and giving birth without doctors sharing what is happening to their bodies. Some women are uneducated; perhaps because their families won't allow it, or lack of feminine hygiene products meant they missed a week of school every month and eventually had to drop out. And some women are silenced, oppressed; prevented from sharing their thoughts and coerced into believing someone else's. Even with all of this going against them, we still believe that women are the key to a healthier society, as the ones who often raise a family and nurture a community. We seek to follow Jesus' examples throughout Scripture, as he sees women and treats them with the dignity ascribed to them as ones created in the image of God.

You can help bring physical and spiritual healing to marginalized women by joining the Unto Women’s Health Summer Mission trip. In partnership with local staff and their partners, you will participate in leading health education workshops that provide life saving information, while building relationships that lead to Gospel conversations. When you participate in this trip, you help to share the kindness of Jesus in incredibly tough places by relieving suffering, restoring dignity, and revealing hope.

The Unto Women’s Health Summer Mission trip is open to female nursing students who have completed approximately two semesters with clinical rotation of nursing school. Female students of other majors may be considered providing they have a medical/science background with some clinical knowledge and experience. We seek ten participants who demonstrate interest in maternal and child health, women’s rights, and women’s ministry. If you have questions about your qualifications, please contact us.

To apply, please complete and submit the summer missions application. Two references are required: one from a Cru staff member and one from a nursing professor. Please have your application in by April 1.
