Missionaries often work in remote or under developed areas without good medical facilities, and face many hardships. Major illnesses, accidents, long term or lifelong treatments affect them physically, financially, emotionally & spiritually. It is a common unmet need. To address this need & to encourage the missionaries to help their fellow brothers in distress, MUT has initiated the Love Your Brother (LYB) scheme.
Each member missionary contributes Rs.55/- per month through the mission to join this scheme. Assistance is provided by reimbursement of medical expenses (sometimes given in advance depending upon the seriousness) up to Rs.60, 000/- for serious illness and accidents.
The cost of treatment for major illness and other surgeries is ever increasing & is beyond the means of missionaries and Christian workers. The interest from the MUT corpus fund set up for this purpose and the earmarked & regular donations received from Friends of MUT adds to the ‘LYB Support Scheme Fund’ & is a great source of encouragement to the affected family.
This is arranged periodically at subsidized rates which would go a long way in identifying hidden problems and preventing serious complications. 23 Mission Hospitals all over India have agreed to do this for Rs.600/- per member. MUT grants Rs.600/-.
