White Cross is a ministry supported primarily by the women of the North American Baptist Conference (NABC). It grew out of the Red Cross work being done during World War I.
White Cross provides the NABC hospital in Cameroon with baby layettes (baby blanket, baby diaper and baby jacket), rolled bandages and absorbent squares, as well as sheets, pillow cases, hospital supplies, guest house supplies and medical supplies.
The Cameroonian hospitals have grown from mission outposts to leaders in medical support and training of physicians at the international level, but the provision of the volunteer prepared material from North America continues to be an invaluable resource allowing available funds to be directed elsewhere.
In the past year, an SVBC member also donated funding for a used ophthalmic camera to be sent to the country.
