Global Medical Relief was a Christian outreach that offers both medical relief and feeding programs that have helped over 300,000 people in over 70 countries. Global Medical Relief was founded by Pastor Ron Clark of the former Living Water Church in Tampa, Florida.
With Pastor Ron Clark’s guidance, the Global Medical Relief team helped to build one of China’s first modern children hospitals in Shenyang, China. The entire project itself was both carried out and conceived solely on the gifts and donations from the United States. With an estimated cost of a hundred and twenty million dollars, the work earned a nomination by the Conrad Hilton Humanitarian Prize in 1996.
