BIO

Dr. Warren and Dr. Lindsey Cooper serve as missionary physicians with CHSC in D.R. Congo. Their Mission is to serve the people of Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo through healthcare missions at Centre Medicale Evangelique-Nyankunde and help them to know Jesus. Lindsey and Warren Cooper moved to Nyankunde in 2013 to participate in the renovation of surgical care through a new facility and in healthcare teaching. Warren spends much of his time training/teaching the residents and young physicians. Lindsey is a pediatrician with experience in intensive care. She focuses on working with children who suffer from malnutrition, complications of heart disease, and works to improve overall nursing care. Nyankunde Hospital serves a population ravaged by war, poverty, and displacement, with the hospital itself having experienced much bloodshed. They hope that their presence offers hope to the people for a brighter future and belief that God can make all things new.
