Renewal Healthcare Network
Renewal Healthcare is a health promotion and disease prevention program of Africa Renewal Ministries designed to rally local communities, the local church and professional health workers to provide sustainable local community mechanisms for disease prevention, curative care and health promotional health activities.
This program was jumpstarted by the creation of Wentz Medical Center in Gaba in 2005 to support the health care for the over 7000 Africa Renewal Ministries’ sponsored children.
Today, WMC is a successful and self sustaining, expanding into a hospital modeling excellence in healthcare service delivery and inspiring the church to engage in community health projects.
Renewal Healthcare partners have also created 4 rural clinics to provide care in underserved growing remote villages;

Usana Vitamin Project
USANA associates every year send a container load USANA vitamins for free distribution to all Children under the care of ARM, for families in the Children’s Hunger Fund Mercy Network, as well vulnerable children attending Wentz Medical Center clinics.
