Dr. Tim and Linda Berg

BIO

Dr. Tim Berg and his wife Linda serve at Kijabe Hospital in Kenya. The Need: Five billion people have no access to essential surgical care especially in low- and middle- income countries. There is a critical shortage in surgically trained health care workers in low and middle-income countries. 93% of Sub Saharan Africa has no access to surgical services. Untreated surgical conditions now kill more people than HIV, TB and Malaria combined. Mission: To meet the surgical needs of Africa through the education and mentoring of future Surgeons and Healthcare Workers, giving a witness as we follow Christ and sharing this burden with our African brothers and sisters. Tim Berg is a General Surgeon serving with the Surgical Team at Kijabe Hospital in Kenya, participating in the PAACS program for Surgical Education. He and his wife, Linda, an English teacher, hail from the Texas Hill Country town of Kerrville. Linda is teaching at the nearby Rift Valley Academy, whose mission is to provide education for missionary children from all over Africa. Tim and Linda have 5 children: Hannah, 21, a junior at Wheaton College in Illinois, Stephen, 19, a sophomore at Texas A&M University, Ruthie, 17, a junior at Rift Valley Academy, Samuel, 15, a sophomore at Rift Valley Academy, and Deste, age 6, a Kindergartener at Rift Valley Academy.
