Mission Jamaica provides free medical and spiritual health care to different communities several times per mission season with a goal to reach as many Jamaicans as possible with the potential to have follow-up care.
Kingston’s Penwood Medical Clinic – MJ has sent doctors, nurses, therapists, dentists and dental hygienists to Kingston since 1993. Hundreds of patients from the community are examined and treated with no cost to them during a MJ week. Currently one clinic is scheduled during the mission season. Additional clinic options are available to expand this ministry to allow for greater access to the Jamaican community and to provide follow up care.
