Our Story

For over 800 years, Franciscan Friars have followed the call of Jesus Christ, to share the hope of the Gospel around the world. Today, the Franciscan Mission Association continues this history, financially supporting the missions of the Order of Friars Minor Conventual in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the former Soviet Union, and even right here in the United States of America.

Our Gratitude

Thank you, dear friends of the missions. We have successfully raised the funds for three wells! With the help of a generous benefactor who made a challenge grant of one full well ($6,000), we we able to generate matching funds to reach our goal of $18,000!

We are currently making arrangements for their installation. We will report back soon with details!

Your gift will make a difference!

Thank You

Our Goal

Completed after ten years of planning and work by the people of the village, the hospital in Jema, Ghana is finally open. Villagers provided all labor they could provide: digging foundation trenches, excavation for septic tanks, and carrying sand and gravel. Though very poor, the villagers also provided 10% of the hospital’s cost.

Yet it lacks the equipment necessary to adequately operate its laboratory. Your gift can change that–and provide lab results to villagers for many miles around Jema.
