Cross Cultural Care hero Dr. James Appel

We have a fundraising goal of $40,000

for Dr.Appel and his family

Our cornerstone health capacity improvement program is now more sustainable with a long term American missionary physician and his family relocating from Chad to Robertsport, Liberia to volunteer for 5 to 10 years! 

James, an American Family Medicine physician and Sarah, a Danish nurse and their three children, Miriam, Noah, and Isak ages 10, 6, and 4 are moving to Liberia soon!

Dr. Appel over the course of 15 years in tChad has performed thousands of Ob/Gyn, General Surgery, & Orthopedic cases without ever taking a salary!!

During the Ebola Crisis, James volunteered in Monrovia. Taking a break to come out and surf in Robertsport Dr. Appel feel in love with the town and its people.

Dr. Appel’s arrival:

  • Will make St. Timothy's Free Public Hospital a true referral hospital & a surgical center of excellence training Liberia’s future doctors and American volunteers

  • Will strengthen C3's relationship with the MoH leadership in the capital

These funds are allocated for:

  • $10,000 in housing remodeling costs for the Appel family & all future C3 volunteers

  • $30,000 for the first 12 months of the family’s living and travel expenses.

  • No funds are used to pay Dr. Appel for he refuses to accept any payment for his work

    Please donate and help C3 bring Dr. Appel

and his family to Robertsport, Liberia
