By Bourama Sidibe

People were also bringing babies to Jesus for Him to place his hands on them. When the disciples saw this, they rebuked them. But Jesus called the children to him and said, “let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” Luke 18:15-16.

Children are utterly dependent on their parents for all their needs. But in many of our societies they are not understood or considered as it should be.

I was born and grew up in a village. In my childhood, I suffered some preventable diseases like all the children of my age because of some disfavoring factors.

I saw many children, including four of my siblings, die in childhood by complications of malaria because of lack of proper understanding of their parents about this disease and lack of an appropriate health facility.

We still see the same situation in many villages in rural areas where the children don’t have adequate care and attention from adults.

Segou, Mali, clinic construction

The Luke Society’s unique strategy of empowering national doctors and nurses to provide health care while sharing the Gospel message of eternal life continues to yield impressive dividends.
 
A remarkable example of the success of this approach is seen in the Luke Society’s newest African ministry partner, Dr. Bourama Sidibe, who is working in southern Mali. Since joining in 2015, he has hit the ground running.
 
Sidibe began his medical ministry by renting a small home in a strategically located rural village. He constructed an addition to this building and brought in a water supply, converting it to a workable clinic. But with the success of his ministry, he has quickly outgrown this facility and now manages more than 300 clinic visits per month in addition to many more patients treated in community visits.
 
Sidibe has extensive training as an evangelist and church planter along with his medical credentials. This has proved to be a highly effective combination when working in the rural Mali villages which are nearly 100 percent Muslim.
