In 2007 GTF-Ethiopia started an annual medical outreach program with a team from City Life Church in Australia.  In 2014 a medical team from the US partnered with GTF and the Australian team to provide additional medical aid in reaching remote Ethiopian communities that do not have health care access.  The Australian and the US teams plan their medical trips 5-6 months apart from each other in order to provide as much year round coverage as possible.  This simply is not enough.  The 7-12 person teams see over 1000 patients a week and are unable to provide follow-up care and ongoing education that is needed.
