Heartbeat for Africa

Heartbeat for Africa (HBA) is a faith-based, nonprofit foundation that exists to honor and join God in being a blessing to the people of rural Africa through community transformation with the goal of breaking the cycle of poverty, disease, unemployment and hopelessness.  HBA partners with Christian-based, African non-profits that are involved in ministering to children that have been orphaned or rescued from human trafficking; agencies employing the Community Health Evangelism (CHE) strategy to promote development within rural African communities using local talent and resources; and agencies providing medical services/clinics in rural communities.

HBA was founded by Ed Harrow and is guided by a number of  PCC members including Dr. Troy Tompkins, June Crawford, Mark Ragel, Greg Lynch and Jeff Wesley.  HBA is currently partnering with Dayo Obaweya, a PCC partner, who represents Medical Ambassadors International and is launching the Africa Internship Training Center (AITC) in Ghana to equip men and women to teach CHE throughout West Africa.  HBA’s other primary partner is the City of Refuge Ministries who ministers to children rescued from slavery on fishing boats in Lake Volta.
