Stories of Hope to inspire you and your congregation to share the work of EMMS International

EMMS International traces its roots back to the Edinburgh Medical Missionary Society. It was founded in 1841 with a purpose of training and equipping doctors for Christian service overseas. Dr David Livingstone was a corresponding member and part of the rich tapestry of the society's early membership. 

Today, as Scotland's international healthcare charity, EMMS International is at the forefront of tackling some of today's biggest healthcare challenges. Fuelled by the generosity and prayers of many individuals, churches and groups, we have helped over 1 million people in the last 7 years. We are delighted to share this with you and to be partners in bringing health and hope in Scotland, Malawi, India and Nepal.
