International Programs

Several members of Abingdon have participated in international missions which include providing medical care, promoting understanding, developing relationships, teaching children, and more. They have traveled widely throughout Africa, Asia, and Latin America to such places  as Haiti, India, Phillipines, Congo, and Peru. 

Programs we are currently supporting include

Woman to Woman, Connecting Virginia to Congo

Woman to Woman is a program supporting the Diocese of Bukavu (Congo) in assisting vulnerable women (and their children) to independence and self-sufficiency. Our members are active on the Diocese of Virginia committee and in the local medical organization which funded a new microscope for the clinic in Goma.

The World Race-Mission Trip

Mission work around the world to 11 countries in 11 months.
