Ethiopia is a historically rich nation located in the Horn of Africa on the northeast corner of the continent. Amharic and English are the primary languages of Ethiopia. Its people have been rebuilding from a series of famines in the 1980s, a serious drought in 2011, and a border war in the north with Eritrea that lasted some twelve years.
Myungsung Christian Medical Center (MCM) arose from an appeal by the Ethiopian government to provide advanced medical care in its capital city, Addis Ababa. Since 2004, hundreds of international healthcare professionals have served at MCM, answering the needs of this nation that continues to suffer great shortages throughout all sectors of healthcare.
