Padre Jorge Nigsch was born in Austria in 1957. He is a Catholic priest and since 1991 he has been working as a missionary in the Vicariato Apostólico de Zamora in Ecuador, where he is a priest, head of the educational establishment of the Vicariato and director of a small missionary hospital which was opened in Guadalupe in the year 2001.
In the missionary clinic voluntary doctors from all over the world are helping the poor. Padre Jorge Nigsch is constantly looking for voluntary general practitioners, dentists, dental technicians.
A world in which every human life is valued and quality health services and dental care are available to all.
Health is a state of emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual well-being, and not just an absence of disease, and it is a fundamental human right. What we are trying to promote in the pastoral work of the parish are healthy individuals through education, religion and medical care. The clinic work is one part of this overarching goal for the Church mission as a whole. The Mission Team (priest, sisters, catechists) are working on spiritual health, and the clinic is working on physical and mental health.
Rooted in the healing ministry of Jesus Christ, and open to all needy persons, the Mission Clinic works to provide quality sustainable health and dental care to those people who live in the “Parroquia Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe” in Zamora-Chinchipe Province and the other underserved citizens of southern Ecuador.
I can arrange for up-to-date specialist information and establish contacts for other net participants.
