The 21st MCOW Traveling Season Opened!

As usual in April the Medical Clinic on Wheels (MCOW) started one more traveling season. The buses have already made three stops! This year the starting point was Ternopil Special School (for children with special needs) and High School #15. MCOW doctors spent two weeks there and examined all kids, teaching them how to lead a healthy way of life. Moreover, all children had a unique opportunity to hear God’s Word, because, as you remember, ULC Deaconess always travels with our clinics.


The next stop was Brody (Lviv region) where WCOW stayed for almost the whole month of May. Not only the local citizens received medical and dental aid but the Brody district council provided free transportation for needy people from nearby villages. Therefore, they also had a chance to get professional care.


Now the American miracle on wheels is in Radekhiv (Lviv region) where a lot of needy people are still waiting for spiritual and physical help. We are very thankful to our sponsors from the States for...[more]

Medical Clinic on Wheels is Coming to Help the Needy!

Summer has just begun but Medical Clinic on Wheels has already visited a lot of institutions in different towns and villages of Ternopil region: village of Hnylytsi, Terebovlya School for children with vision problems, Terebovlya School for deaf children, Koropets Orphanage, etc.
In some places people have known our Medical Clinic on Wheels for many years. People know what kind of help they can get at MCOW and are looking forward to its visit. New places consider MCOW to be something unexpected and unique since there is no any other mobile clinic in all over Ukraine like ours! All our visitors are satisfied with MCOW since they are getting medical and dental aid free of charge, they are getting some cute presents, much useful advice, and moreover they are enriching their spiritual world.

By the end of the year this unique center of spiritual and physical health will visit a lot of remote places in Ukraine. Thank you is sent to all the sponsors who make it happen.

Strange Village or More Adventures for Medical Clinic on Wheels
Among the vast territories of Kherson steppes one can find the village of Dyvne (Strange village). In the fall of 2009 GoL Medical Clinic on Wheels worked there for the first time. This village is called Strange either because it has unusual history or because it has some uncommon geographical peculiarities – no one can say it for sure.

On the request of local agricultural company “Ukraine-Dyvne” MCOW worked in the Strange village from August 31 to September 12. People there are not spoiled by civilization and modern conveniences. Some people have already forgotten about doctors’ existence. That is why it was really pleasant to see more and more people coming to get medical help.

Villagers wanted to share their painful problems, their secrets and inner thoughts or anything else that had bothered them during a long period of time. Workers of the Medical Clinic on Wheels tried to improve both mental and physical health of locals.

Our history

Gift of Life began as Medical Clinic on Wheels (MCOW) in 1992. Support from the Evangelical Lutheran Synod mission society, Thoughts of Faith Inc., together with the late Dr. Stephen Dudiak, a Madison, Wisconsin Radiologist made this Ukrainian outreach possible. Children exposed to the nuclear catastrophe at Chernobyl were the first to receive treatments.

Gift of Life provides help to the most needy, physically/mentally challenged, orphans, socially unprotected and indigent population of Ukraine. Services are provided free of charge. Opportunities for further assistance abound. Your financial support turns the opportunities into reality. Please keep Gift of Life in your prayers.
