Decades of Impact across the world

Highlighted portions of the map are areas where SWMCF has advanced the Gospel of Jesus Christ and His Kingdom through gathering and disbursing resources for medical related Christian missions.

Imagine a world where healthcare and the word of God reaches everyone

Since its inception, the Southwestern Medical Clinic Foundation has been driven by a profound commitment to Christian medical missions. This dedication began in 1968, when a group of visionary physicians decided that their skills and compassion could transcend borders. Their legacy of compassionate care has brought healing and hope to countless lives, demonstrating the profound impact one organization can have across continents and generations.

Over the years, we have supported short and long-term medical missionaries in the following locations: Bangladesh, China, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ecuador, Honduras, India, Kenya, Malawi, Nepal, Nigeria, Niger, Papua New Guinea, Russia, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Suriname, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and here at home in the United States. At any given time, an average of 20 Southwestern Medical Clinic providers are overseas using their gifts from God to serve communities in need of medical care. Our mission involves creating sustainable relationships with the medical organizations in which our physicians provide support in other countries, and many physicians go on recurrent medical missions to a number of locations, such as the Tenwek Hospital in Kenya.

Every contribution helps us extend our reach and enhance our impact.

A Word From Heaven
Dr. Ron Baker Tribute

Dr. Ron Baker, 76, Southwestern Medical Clinic, of Berrien Springs, Mich., passed from this world to be with his Lord on Friday, March 10, 2023.

Ron had the wonderful privilege of growing up in Sierra Leone, West Africa, where his parents were serving as United Brethren in Christ (UBC) missionaries. In 6th grade, at KRMS missionary boarding school, he committed his life to Jesus Christ. He was able to immerse himself in the local language and culture, which would serve him well when he came back as an adult to serve as a missionary doctor at Mattru UBC Hospital. Being one of only a few white men who were fluent in Mende and Krio, the local language, he was greatly respected. The locals were also drawn to him and his family due to the love of Christ demonstrated to them.

Ron recorded his “A Word From Heaven” in the Mende and English languages prior to passing from this world to be with his Lord. Please join us in our tribute & remembrance of Ron’s testimony as he presents
“A Word From Heaven”.
