Dahra, Senegal


Centre Medico-Socia

(Note: this ministry is in transition following the sudden death of the director, Dr. Ousmane Soh in September 2019. The clinic remains open under the direction of an interim director. Return later for more information.)

Dr. Ousmane Soh seemed like everything the Luke Society was not. Raised in a Fulani Muslim home, Soh decided to go to medical school in Libya with no intentions to return to his homeland, and certainly not in a Christian mission.

That’s when God went to work, changing his heart and molding him into someone with a love and passion for Jesus Christ.

Not only that, but Soh felt the Lord calling him to return to his homeland in Dahra, Senegal, where he has set up a clinic and now brings hope and healing in a country that is 94-percent Muslim.

Soh, a cardiologist by trade, is renting a facility, but is progressing on the construction of a new medical complex a couple of miles away. The new facility is strategically located near a bus stop, school and two mosques – all presenting opportunities for outreach.



Director profile

The ministry is in transition while its board makes decisions about the future of the ministry. The Partnership Ministry Team for Senegal is Drs. Kyle and Diane Krall and Steve and Mary Holman.
