On March 26th, Dr. Green and his team at Jacksonville Hearing and Balance Institute will be taking their yearly medical mission trip to Jos, Nigeria.
Begun in 2010, Hearing Help for Africa is the brainchild of Dr. Douglas Green, his wife Kelley and Dr. Joel Anthis. The Greens and their family made several mission trips to Lusaka, Zambia with Family Legacy Missions in the early 2000s. They were struck by the incredible joy exhibited by the African people in the midst of extreme poverty, profound loss of the family structure due to AIDS, and the hardships imposed by governmental corruption. Dr. Green was subsequently invited to visit Nigeria by Dr. Anthis, an American ear, nose and throat physician who was working full-time in a Christian missionary hospital in Jos, Nigeria. While there Dr. Green witnessed firsthand the scope of the need as he performed surgery and helped provide medical care for patients with ear-related problems.
