ABOUT


John 10:10 “the enemy comes to kill, steal and destroy BUT I have come to bring Life abundantly”

Simple Health Care’s Goal is to teach others health education modules in such a way that it becomes sustainable and reproducible by the local developing communities. Our Kona team has traveled to Cambodia, Thailand, Togo, Honduras and across the United States to run workshops to train others to pass on this vital information. Our workshop participants have ranged from the highly educated to those with little to no education who cannot read or write.
