The L'Chaim Prize is an award granted annually to help the work of a long-term medical missionary serving in Africa. We are thankful and excited that Jason Fader is among the four finalists for the inaugural L'Chaim Prize. If he is chosen from among the finalists, this $500,000 award would help Kibuye Hope Hospital in these ways: to help build a surgical ward, to fund a post-graduate medical education program (which would be the first of its kind in the country of Burundi), and to acquire orthopedic supplies which would enable us to surgically repair broken hips, femurs and tibias.

It is hard to ask for prayers that we would win, since we know 2 of the other finalists, and the work of any of the finalists could greatly benefit from such a generous gift. May God's will be done!
