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, Philippines, Congo, and Peru.

Programs we are currently supporting include:

Women to Women, Connecting Virginia to Congo

Women to Women is a program in conjunction with 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.

African Team Ministry

This ministry is focused on providing African artistic entrepreneurs with a market for the carvings, beadwork, paintings, and other beautiful creations.  All the money raised from sales of these items is returned to the artists so they can provide for their families and their community.
