Because God loves all people (John 3: 16), because Jesus sent his disciples to preach the Kingdom of God and heal the sick (Luke 9: 2) and because God wants to see His Kingdom manifested in the Health fields of the world (Matt 10:6)… HCF International serves healthcare workers and congregations by Inspiring and Equipping them to carry out their responsibilities in regard to others, especially the sick.
We care with love and the compassion of Christ Jesus
Compassion is the appropriate identification with the suffering of others leading to enabling action. Compassion is elicited by the observation of suffering. We allow the pain of others to touch our hearts in an appropriate manner – neither too much nor too little. Too much will lead to burnout, too little leads to cold and distant relationships.
Appropriate identification touches us deeply enough that it stirs us into action – enabling action. By this we mean that we empower those who suffer to identify and solve their own problems using their own means as soon as possible. We take extra care not to make them dependent on us in the long run.
